Cuban Modernism Lecture at MOLAA, August 22

The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is proud to present a series of architecture and design lectures. Experts in these fields will speak about the various architectural and design styles present in Latin America, particularly Cuba, while providing a historical context for the different style movements which have influenced that country’s architecture. The next lecture will be about Cuban Modernism on August 22, presented by Rosa Lowinger, a recognized international expert in the conservation of built heritage.

Spare, geometric, and light as air, Cuban architecture of the 1940s and 1950s arose directly out of the international modernist style. By looking at buildings such as Max Borges’ Tropicana Cabaret as well as examples of domestic architecture, we will see how Cuba’s use of the international style was directly related to its political and social milieu at the time.
