From the Global Border to the Border Neighborhood

Teddy Cruz

From the Global Border to the Border Neighborhood is a visual narrative animation focused on specific housing projects on both sides of the border. In San Diego, working with Casa Familiar, this has produced the re-thinking of housing beyond “an amount of units per acre,” proposing instead a new model of affordability by recuperating the hidden economic programs for the neighborhood. In Tijuana, it has been important to rethink the meaning of housing by proposing collaboration across existing recycling dynamics in informal communities, maquiladora factories, emergency housing, and the politics of labor and social activism.
