In celebration of the San Diego / Tijuana World Design Capital (2024), the exhibition Practice/Practica highlights local practitioners whose design work synthesizes the material and social dimensions always present in architecture. Practice/Practica points to intersections across material, social, cultural and political factors that can reimagine the built environment.   The “material-practice” of Tecture, Miki Iwasaki, or Weiszblüth & Brown, that explores high and low-tech forms of fabrication to reimagine public and domestic space.   The “research-practice” of Guillermo Sepulveda-Gil’s historical reconstruction of Tijuana (Universidad Autonoma de Baja California), or Stan Rodriguez’s Kumeyaay Studies (Cuyamaca College), that affirms the presence of local cultures and histories on both sides of the border to argue for their continuity.   The “participatory-design practice” of Rob Quigley Architects that makes public the technical and normative intricacies of design to broaden the concerns addressed by the architectural project.   The “environmental-practice” of Miller-Hull, or Polyhaus, that responds to the urgent need for sustainable, technology-based alternatives to address a rapidly changing world.
