In memory of the fallen

The city of Tijuana has suffered big losses in its urban memory, historical heritage, and built identity – such as the complex of the old Casino Agua Caliente and La Puerta México. Without focusing on the reasons why they disappeared, join us to explore a couple of interventions that can contribute to intertwine the urban identity and the recovery of heritage in the city.

This event attempts to pay tribute to those emblematic buildings that have disappeared, narrating their history, and showing a series of images. In this live virtual presentation, attendees will learn about important buildings of the city that today don’t exist and will be able to ask questions at the end with the presenter. This will be presented in English with Q&A in English and Spanish.

Born and raised in Tijuana, passionate about heritage and city topics. Since 2014, she has been a professor in architecture at the Universidad Iberoamericana CDMX-Tijuana.

Se Hace Arquitectura

Se Hace Arquitectura creates projects that are conscious of the context in which they are located. Emerging from an environment as chaotic and contradictory as the Tijuana-San Diego region has given them the opportunity to generate designs in adverse conditions. Because of geographical conditions, the practice of the office has focused on the needs Se Hace Arquitectura considers imperative in the region, proposing what is common for other contexts but non-existent at a local level.
