How do we deconstruct the meaning of the word “border” in order to deconstruct the architecture of a physical border, to reconstruct a new and progressive architecture, and reconstruct a new and progressive meaning to the word “border”? The subject matter of this thesis is to design a multi-cultural food and arts market, with spaces for creating community, learning, and creating art, located at the San Diego and Tijuana border, at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. The goal of the market is to present a different way of looking at the architecture and urban surroundings of what used to be two border cities, in a futuristic new country, where California and Baja California unite. Designers tend to have different techniques throughout the design and concept development process, it depends on the user ́s needs or the context requirements. It is important for designers to experiment different creative ways of approaching a new project to connect a space with the user. For this project, I wanted to experiment with storytelling in order to communicate words, feelings, sensations, and perspectives about the market through the story. This would allow me to introduce my project ́s design and architecture through the main characters eyes and perspectives of the market.
