Cuban Modernism: Mid-Century Architecture 1940-1970

In stock (999 items available)
In the 20th century, modern architecture thrived in Cuba and a wealth of buildings was realised both before and after the revolution. The designs comprise luxurious nightclubs and stylish hotels, sports facilities, elegant homes and apartment complexes. Drawing on the vernacular, their architects defined a way to be both modern and Cuban, oscillating between tradition and avant-garde. This is the first comprehensive survey of Cuba’s rich and fascinating mid-century architecture.
