Actions and Detail Panel
Housing Across Borders: Mexican and U.S. Housing in Perspective
Fri, May 26, 2017, 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM PDT
The aim of this conference to discuss housing in Mexico and the U.S. together: looking for connections, identifying elements for comparison and exploring common processes shaping housing—broadly construed—on both sides of the border. Through this conversation we hope to extract lessons as a provocation that can lead us to testing our ideas about what housing and city mean.
