"From the Global Border to the Border Neighborhood"

Teddy CruzAs the world becomes more interconnected, it is critical for professionals in the built environment to think beyond borders and geographic lines. Inspired by his San Diego office that sits near the busiest border crossing the world, architect and urban theorist Teddy Cruz attempts to integrate two cultures geographically close yet culturally distant from one another. Cruz will discuss his firm's work in creating affordable housing, community centers, and developments on both sides of the border.
