ARCHITECT as Designer,
Developer, and Builder
City making, one infill project at a time
Over the last 15 years, San Diego has become a hub for the alternative Architect-Developer-Builder practice. This movement has been championed by Woodbury School of Architecture MSArch RED Faculty and Alumni. Collectively, this select band of architectural entrepreneurs have designed a multitude of innovative housing models and developed sensible and profitable infill projects throughout the region. Students in this most unique, studio-centered Real Estate Development Program learn to identify opportunities, quantify scale and costs, qualify financial viability, and most importantly, monetize their sweat equity.

Bi-National Artist Organizations + Artists
Known as a cross-border megalopolis the San Diego/Tijuana region is vibrant with museums, galleries, and artist-run spaces playing an important role in the development and identity of the area. In the past two decades, the area has seen spaces come and go, but the energy and need for keeping the arts at the center of the socio-economic fabric of this area have prevailed the violence, economic downfalls, and the current political discourse. Artists, cultural administrators, and entrepreneurs have joined forces to ensure that the area is distinguished as the new cultural Mecca. Join us to hear how these players see the evolution and future growth of the region.
