About this event

Join us for a conversation with the authors, in person at the Miami Center for Architecture & Design.

ABOUT THE BOOK

From the publisher: "For several decades during this time period, 20th century architecture thrived in Cuba — the designs comprise luxurious nightclubs and stylish hotels, sports facilities, elegant private homes and apartment complexes. Drawing on the vernacular, the architects of these works defined a way to be modern and Cuban at the same time, creating an architecture oscillating between tradition and avant-garde.

Audacious concrete shells, curving ramps, elegant brises-soleils and a fluidity of interior and exterior spaces are characteristic of an airy, often colorful architecture well-suited to life in the tropics. New photographs and drawings were specially prepared for this publication. A biographical survey portraits the 40 most important Cuban architects of the era, listed below. This volume is the first comprehensive survey of Cuba’s rich and fascinating mid-century architecture and includes previously inaccessible material."
