A revealing collection of amazingly fresh and undiscovered mid-century architecture and interiors in Havana. Caribbean design expert and historian Michael Connors takes the reader on an unprecedented tour of Havana through stunning architecturally important private houses and buildings that have been meticulously preserved, previously un-photographed and mostly inaccessible to visitors. This luxurious book depicts the modern movement in Cuban architecture, from art nouveau and art deco to the flourishing of high modernism just before the Revolution, spanning from the early 1900s to 1965. At a time when travelers are rediscovering to Cuba, this volume offers a variety of the city’s cultural achievements in the 20th century. The photographs, taken exclusively for the book, show examples of the artistic neighborhood of Vedado, the coastal streets of Miramar, downtown Havana and the elegant Country Club Park area of ​​Havana. Iconic locations such as the remarkably futuristic National Schools of Art in Cuba are included; the emblematic art deco building of Bacardi; Alfred von Schulthess House by Richard Neutra; the elegant Habana Riviera Hotel and its original interiors from 1957; the Hotel Nacional de Cuba, designed by McKim, Mead & White, on Havana’s boardwalk, the Malecon; and the famous Tropicana cabaret disco by architect Max Borges. Havana Modern is a pioneering modern design book that shows a corner of the world where modern architecture thrived and has been carefully preserved.
