The purpose this workshop is to offer an intensive course on Cuban modern architecture and on-the-ground exposure to the challenges and opportunities of historic preservation in present-day Havana. This workshop is designed as a pair of lecture classes in New York followed by a one-week trip to Cuba. Upon completing an intensive course on Cuban modern architecture and on-the-ground exposure to the challenges and opportunities of preservation in present-day Havana, students will submit an essay - written, photographic, or cinematic - exploring an area of particular interest developed during the trip, or a critical interpretation of some aspect of Cuban architecture, urbanism or preservation policy.
