Summary
"Latin American Architecture profiles architects from six of the major countries - Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay, and Venezuela - six voices "speaking" for the region. The essays capture the political and social changes that have altered the face of Latin American countries and show how these architects continually attempt to balance the old with the new, intimating at the same time the continuity and cultivation of a tradition so persistent in Latin American architecture. In doing so, the artists reveal the two major schools of development: minimalist and tectonic tradition."--Jacket
