Guatemalan-born Teddy Cruz is the founding principal of Estudio Teddy Cruz,
an architecture studio deftly negotiating the border between San Diego and
Tijuana through design since 1993. Responding to patterns of human
migration, Cruz has reconfigured the housing design process as an innovative
social network using community-based nonprofit Casa Familiar as a developer.
Cruz was awarded the James Stirling Memorial Lecture on the City in 2004 and
the Rome Prize in Architecture from the American Academy in Rome. He is
currently Associate Professor in Public Culture and Urbanism at UCSD’s
Visual Arts Department.
People & Buildings is made possible by the New York Council for the
Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
