La Casita en la Colonia Altamira Calle Rio de Janeiro No. 6757, Tijuana: pebble mosaic floor of courtyard
Patricia Patterson's inSITE97 project was a collaborative effort to transform a small home in Tijuana into a visually captivating space for the surrounding community to meet, talk, eat, and engage in activities with one another. Working over a period of nine months, Patterson and her team of students and craftsmen renovated, painted, and landscaped the home of the Resendiz family to create a vibrant center in the residential colonia. Once complete, "La Casita en la Colonia Altamira, Calle Rio de Janeiro No. 6757, Tijuana" hosted numerous parties, brunches, and other gatherings of both local residents and visitors from San Diego, making the house a space for cross-cultural exchange and diversity. --inSITE97
