Washington University Summer Studio in Tijuana
Lecture Series 2009

For the second successive summer, Washington University will explore the San Diego / Tijuana Region through a series of urban and architecture design projects. Following the success of last year’s work into large scale master plans for a diverse set of urban conditions around the city of Tijuana and San Diego , this year’s agenda will focus on community scale projects that engage a dialogue in terms of identity, culture, architecture and community building. The 8 week studio will begin with a trip to Mexico City to study and research related cultural, political and urban issues that are relevant to the relationships between center and periphery, local and global as well as the work and projects of emerging Mexican architects and urban designers. The studio will reconvene, for the duration of the studio, in San Diego and work from Woodbury School of Architecture’s new building in the Hispanic district of Barrio Logan. Reference to local topics and contemporary theory on urbanism will be offered by an accompanying lecture series involving experts from Tijuana, San Diego and Los Angeles. Our lecture series is open to the public. See poster for dates and times.
