Stateside shantytown

US architect Teddy Cruz has long focused on what architecture can learn from informal settlements. His latest project aims to build residential areas in various parts of the US that mimic the Shantytowns of Tijuana, Mexico. He’s already pitched proposals for a site in the Hudson Valley, New York, and has now shifted focus to San Ysidro, a small community just north of the US-Mexico border. Homes will be packed together, and any leftover space to be taken up by taco stands, market stalls and meeting places.
