SciFI Symposium The City After The Economy

SCI Arc’s Future Initiatives program hosts a symposium with Kevin Ratner, David Bergman, Dan Wood, Peter Zellner, and Rene Peralta. The panelists discuss the recession spurred by the financial crisis of 2008. While investigating the architectural implications of the slowed economy, the group discusses in general the role of the architect in urban policy making, the future of the crisis, and the possibility that smaller firms will emerge in a better position than established ones.

Rene Peralta describes his designs as juxtaposed neighboring conditions aimed at creating awareness. His Mexican heritage is significant, especially in projects dealing with the Mexican-American border, boundary conditions, and border cities. He strives to conflict and contradict existing urban conditions.

Chris Genik introduces Teddy Cruz by saying that his work has established new territories and boundaries within the discourse of identity. His practice is based in San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico and he is Associate Professor of Public Culture and Urbanism in Visual Arts at the University of California San Diego. Through his work, Cruz engages the convulsion of identities caused by the trans-border movement of migrant populations.

Teddy Cruz presents a selection of his work and explains the motivations behind each project. His Levittown project focuses on an area around San Diego that used to be the periphery, but has been encroached upon by the informal economy and dense immigration. The project shows how political, environmental, and socioeconomic degradation are all inextricably connected. Another of his projects in San Ysidro suggests a new paradigm of housing that could emerge from a collaboration between NGOs, local governments, and communities.

Teddy Cruz presents a selection of his work and explains the motivations behind each project. Two projects that came out of his work with NGOs, the local government, and the community of San Ysidro are a senior housing facility with child care and a project called Living Rooms at the Border. This project studied existing movement patterns and approached each parcel of land as a system in which the housing becomes a producer of economies. A similar approach was taken in a project in Hudson, New York where new alternative community spaces were generated that connected a gentrified street with a depressed street two blocks away.

Stanley Tigerman’s project for the 2000 exhibition at the Staatsgalerie in Berlin comments on the present condition and possible future of the city. The project breaks the Berlin Wall at a series of points that result in passages that let people freely pass over and under the wall, and creates a linear park along both sides. Tigerman responds to questions from the audience, stating that it’s impossible to remember who
one is and what one has done, and that honest reflections of the current state of things are ethical considerations.
