Founder, Estudio Teddy Cruz, San Diego
Teddy Cruz founded his San Diego-based practice, estudio teddy cruz, in 1993. His work “dwells at the border between San Diego and Tijuana, inspiring a practice and pedagogy that emerges out of the particularities of this bicultural territory and the integration of theoretical research and design production.” Cruz’s projects include “Corridors on Imperial” in San Diego and Casa Familiar affordable housing in San Ysidro. His housing project, “Border Postcards: Chronicles from the Edge,” was awarded the 2004-2005 James Stirling Memorial Lecture on the City competition sponsored by the Canadian Center for Architecture, Van Alen Institute, and London School of Economics and Political Science. Cruz received a Rome Prize, a P/A Award, and Robert Taylor Teaching Award from the ACSA.
The lecture begins at 7pm in the W. M. Keck Lecture Hall. All lectures are free and open to the public, with free secure parking in the SCI-Arc parking lot located at 360 Merrick St, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
