Upper-Level students and Prof. Correa visit Mexico.
Last weekend, students enrolled in the upper-level "Mexican Enclave Studio" visited the small towns of Santiago de Queretaro, Guanajuato, and San Miguel de Allende located about 200 kms northwest of Mexico City. Under the direction of Professor Jaime Correa, and with the sponsorship of Brian Canin (Canin Associates), the students visited and documented  paradigmatic examples of historic courtyard housing and their effects on urban morphologies in various topographic conditions. The eight upper-level students, Brian Canin, and Professor Correa were joined by expert faculty members from the Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey in Queretaro, including: Professor Angela Ramirez, Director of the Undergraduate Program in Architecture, Professor Hector Tinajero, an expert on historic courtyard housing, and Oscar Hache, an urban researcher dedicated to social innovations and typo-morphological investigations in various Mexican cities.
