Master’s Project
Ti)2 Mercado, Pollution-Fighting Multi-Cultural Market


The goal of my thesis was to try and see what future technologies exist that can be used to stop the pollution problems we are experiencing today. I studied titanium dioxide as a means of cleaning the air but also creating a space that is both memorable and innovative. My Ti02 Mercado sits in the heart of San Ysidro, a neighborhood in San Diego, California, just north of the U.S.-Mexico border. It brings together the American and Mexican cultures while also cleaning the pollution that flows from Tijuana.

    Way to go Madeleine “SunCat!” We are so very proud of you and what you’ve achieved with all your hard work. We know this will help you in your future where ever you go or do. I don’t want to go on and on about your choice of the school you decided to pursue but I know your family will agree with me that you picked the BEST school ever. All kidding aside we couldn’t be happier to have this piece of schooling behind you and now you can move on to the next stage of your career and life. God Bless you and Go Cats! SunDevils too! Love Tio Paco & Tia Anita
