Description

This book examines the convergence and collision of architecture, ideology, and culture in 1960s Cuba through the architectural design for the Escuelas Nacionales de Arte. The attention that his book brought to these works of architecture prodded the Cuban government to commit to their restoration, and to declare them national monuments in November 2010. In addition, the book has provided the inspiration for a documentary film, Unfinished Spaces by Alysa Nahmias, an art installation Utopía Posible at the 2009 Gwangju Biennial by Felipe Dulzaides, and an opera, Revolution of Forms, being developed with Robert Wilson as director.
