KITE Architects and Cuba: A Personal Exploration of Architecture in Cuba


Cuba’s architecture is among the most diverse in the world. Reflective of both the country’s political and social history, its buildings capture the essence of Cuban life from colonial to modern times. Join KITE Architect’s Albert Garcia, along with interior designer Libby Slader and Providence Revolving Fund’s Clark Schoettle as they discuss their recent trips and individual perspectives into Cuba’s important design culture. Albert will share insights into the unique challenges of being a creative professional in a country where the profession of architecture was essentially banned for a generation.
