Tijuana cultural center’s geometric growth

 

I wrote about the Tijuana Cultural Center, CECUT, in a recent post. Known affectionately as La Bola, it’s a cultural and arts center not far from the San Ysidro port of entry that gained architectural notoriety for the giant ball that esconces its IMAX theater.

 Now it’s time for an update: This weekend, the center opens a $9 million section that adds 16,145 square feet to the center’s exhibition space, according to an article in The San Diego Union Tribune. The new section is dubbed El Cubo  for its contrasting 90 degree angles, and the first two exhibits feature Buddhist sculptures and a show called “Civic Project.”

El Cubo (not to be confused with the Casa del Tunel) opens to the public this Sunday, Sept. 28, (10 a.m. to 7 p.m), according to the CECUT website. The CECUT’s regular hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Check my previous CECUT post for directions.
