This event is taking place during Miami Entertainment Months. Explore here to learn more about this Miami Temptations Program.

Learn all there is to know about Cuba’s architectural influence on mid-century Modernist architecture. Led by Victor Deep and Jean Francois Lejeune, authors of the new book Cuban Modernism: Mid-Century Architecture, 1940–1970, the presentation will deliver an insightful look at how 20th-century architects drew inspiration from both vernacular traditions and avant-garde currents in defining a style that was both modern and Cuban. From luxurious nightclubs like the Tropicana Cabaret to Cuba’s celebrated National School of Arts, the authors will cover a selection of iconic projects as well as lesser known, previously unavailable visual material.

This event is co-hosted and co-presented with the Miami Design Preservation League. In accordance with MDPL’s policies, participants are required to wear masks.
