Design Matters
Unwalling Citizenship

The Tijuana-San Diego border region is a hotly politicized area representing some of North Americas most debated issues, including deepening social and economic inequality, dramatic migratory shifts, urban informality, and climate change.

Teddy Cruz will share the work of Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman at the US-Mexico border region. He will discuss their work on “citizenship culture" and the network of civic spaces they have co-developed with border communities to cultivate regional and global solidarities.

Date: Wednesday, November 29, 2023
Time: 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. (MT)
Location: City Building Design Lab, 616 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary
