La Union Studio is an interdisciplinary collaboratory & design consultancy that engages the complexity of contemporary society through a blend & balance of architectural design, interior design, and cultural placemaking. We inherently employ ruthless optimism and diligent rigor, dedicated to a conviction that architecture can awaken people, enrich communities and inspire creativity. We reflect the cultural narratives of our clients and their community both in the design process and in the delivery of service. Our process is rooted in both the digital and the analog, with a belief in an equitable methodology that is simultaneously collaborative and iterative, and we recognize that architecture is accomplished by people and for people. We are as nimble as we are steadfast, as ardent as we are resolute, and we embrace a diversity of perspectives throughout the design process to refine the delivery of our projects. Above all, we strive to speak the language of architecture to all people.

In 1977 a group of students of Mexican ancestry who identified as Chicana/os in recognition of their unique social, cultural and political identities joined forces with a Chicano Art Professor, Rubén Trejo, to establish the Chicano Education Program. Since its creation, this program has served as an academic and community center for students and their families. Today, the Chicana/o/x Studies Program, as is known, provides services for students of all backgrounds: Chicanx, Indigenous, Hispanic, Latinx, immigrant, migrant, Caribbean, Central American, South American, non-Latinx, and beyond. Our program offers academic and non-academic support services both in English and Spanish, such as advising, peer mentorship, and tutoring opportunities, culturally relevant events, scholarship information, and a home away from home.

The Black Trans Prayer Book is an interfaith, multi-dimensional, artistic and theological work that collects the stories, poems, prayers, meditation, spells, and incantations of Black Trans & Non-Binary people. Often pushed out of Faith spaces and yet still deeply connected to a historical legacy of spiritual essentiality, Black Trans People face unprecedented amounts of spiritual, physical, and psychological violence. The Black Trans Prayer Book is a tool of healing, and affirmation centered on uplifting Black Trans & Non-Binary people and celebrating our place within faith.
What does it mean to have a faith practice that simultaneously challenges white supremacy and transphobia? Where is there a theological framework that centers the most marginalized and creates pathways towards an active spirituality moving alongside social justice? How might a spiritual practice not in tune with these questions cause harm? The #BlackTransPrayerBook, is holding these very questions.

Tatiana Garmendia is an inter-disciplinary artist with a figurative twist. Her work synthesizes formal concerns and a humanist engagement with history and culture. “History is not a subject I just picked up from a dusty schoolbook, but things I’ve actually lived. I remember playing in abandoned missile trenches as a child,” says the artist, who was born in Cuba during the height of the Cold War. Repatriation from the Spanish government took the artist’s family first to Madrid, and later to the U.S.A.
