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.
