Havana Living Today: Cuban Home Style Now – A Book Talk

Hermes Mallea, esteemed architect and FRIENDS Board Member, joins us at the Americas Society for a look at his latest book, Havana Living Today: Cuban Home Style Now. While many Cuban images depict vintage cars and dilapidated buildings, Mallea brings an insider’s view and challenges these preconceived notions, showing us the vibrant, creative, and eclectic domestic interiors that are re-shaping Cuban living. Havana Living Today presents an authentic Cuban style developed in spite of scarcities and isolation, asserting the homeowners’ personality, reflecting recent reforms that legalize real estate transactions and allow new entrepreneurial activities that are making an impact of Havana’s appearance and economy. Held at its beautiful building on Park Avenue – the former Percy R. Pyne House designed by McKim, Mead & White - the Americas Society is an organization dedicated to education, debate, and dialogue in the Americas, and seeks to foster an understanding of the contemporary issues and diverse heritage of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada.
