The work and writings of architect Teddy Cruz, who distilled elements from shantytowns in Tijuana to create a template for redevelopment in suburban communities across the border, inspires this thought-provoking, interactive space called CANCIóN Courtyard. Composed of two structures that create three spaces ― a cyber lounge, a house containing a mural about Cesar Chavez, and a courtyard ― the structure is the brainchild of Pilar Agüero-Esparza, the highly regarded local artist and arts educator whose work graces the interior of the Biblioteca Latinoamericana Public Library in San Jose, and H. Dionicio Mendoza, a San Jose-based artist whose work has been exhibited around the globe. CANCIóN Courtyard will serve as home base for ZER01’s efforts.
