Join the Class of 2020 and your fellow Loebs for an insider’s view of the physical, social, and economic forces in play today at the nexus of San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Baja California.
San Diego and Tijuana benefit from a rich shared culture, while challenged by pressures of financial inequality and evolving immigration policies. The region is a modern-day melting pot in flux, and in many ways a vanguard of things to come for our nation. As such, it contains a wealth of lessons and opportunities for Loeb Fellows to experience this fall.
BREAD & SALT
Bread & Salt is an arts collective located in a former bread bakery in Barrio Logan adjacent to the growing downtown. Founded by James Brown and Isabel Dutra, the 45,000 SF facility houses community meeting spaces, multiple galleries, instructional studios, artist studios, glass and wood working studios, and more.
James Brown is an architect, contractor and developer from San Diego, California. His work explores ‘making’ at a variety of scales, from furniture and public art to architect as developer and urban infill projects that redefine the role of architecture. His explorations exhibit a curiosity of process and cross-fertilization.
