About: The Other Border Wall Proposals were submitted by J.M. Design Studios on April 4, 2017 to the United States Customs and Border Protection Agency, part of the Department of Homeland Security for their "Other Border Wall" Request For Qualifications. J.M. Design Studios submitted six original ideas. The studio includes Tereneh Mosley, Leah Patgorski and myself. We are based in Pittsburgh, PA. This was Phase One of our commitment to remain in dogged step with this administration's attempts to build a wall.
