Brown Power: The Architecture of Chinasimo in the Land of Opportunity

From ByDesign, UC Berkeley, Volume 23 Spring May 2017

In this anniversary issue we publish the definitive treatise on the ‘Architecture of Chicanismo’ by Joseph Martinez, who came out San Diego’s Logan Heights to realize an extraordinary career. Starting his practice in a single room of a small house, with $30.00 in the bank, Mr. Martinez exemplifies the raison d’ etre of ByDESIGN. Martinez, a Harvard University educated architect has designed projects in the Southwest, Mexico/Latin America, India, the United Arab Emirates, and is the leading proponent of Chicano Architecture in the US.
