EMERGING VOICE 2013
With offices in both Tijuana and San Diego, graciastudio designs buildings that reflect the influences of regional labor, materials, and markets on construction. Recently focused on prefabricated architecture, the studio led by Jorge Gracia sees economic constraints as an opportunity for architects to exploit and develop creativity and inventiveness. Recent work includes the Culinary Art School and CAS Hotel, both in Tijuana, and the Encuentro Guadalupe, a mixed used residential-hotel community in Ensenada, Mexico.
Jorge Gracia received a B.Arch and a M.Int.Bus from Universidad Iberoamericana Noroeste and currently teaches at the Universidad Iberoamericana (Tijuana) and Escuela Libre de Arquitectura (Tijuana). The office was recently featured in Architectural Record’s Design Vanguard issue. See more of their work at graciastudio.com.
Jorge Gracia will be presenting the work of his firm on Thursday, March 7th, as part of the Emerging Voices 2013 lecture series.
