design field trip:

April 5-7, 2019
Tijuana & Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico


A curated design experiencE | UNA EXPERIENCIA DE DISEÑO CURADO

Cross-border cooperation drives the economies—and life in general—in the more than a dozen twin cities across from each other on the US-Mexico international boundary. Border cities are tightly bound by manufacturing and trade. Tijuana in particular is undergoing a cultural, culinary, technological, and economic transformation as it evolves from a manufacturing hub into a budding outpost of the knowledge economy.

In the spirit of cross-border collaboration, we're taking our first LA Design Festival field trip to explore behind-the-scenes in Tijuana and Valle de Guadalupe.

Our guide for this weekend design adventure is Tijuana native, cultural curator, entrepreneur and design advocate, Illya Haro. Not only will we get a taste (and a few sips) of what makes Tijuana and Valle so special, but more importantly, we'll get to meet some of the designers, architects, culinary visionaries, and cultural influencers who are driving the movement.
