Beyond Modernist Masters: Contemporary Architecture in Latin America
Congratulations to Roshni Thakrar, from Staffordshire, for winning last month’s book competition.
This month we are offering a FREE copy of BEYOND MODERNIST MASTERS: CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE IN LATIN AMERICA, by FELIPE HERNANDEZ.
Latin America has been an important place for architecture for many decades, with masters like Oscar Niemeyer, Luis Barragán, Eladio Dieste, and Lina Bo Bardi pointing the way for architectural design all over the world. However, architecture on the continent has continued to evolve, and more recently an extremely creative scene has developed. Within this context, in BEYOND MODERNIST MASTERS (a book made possible by funding provided by the RIBA Research Trust), Felipe Hernandez considers outstanding projects by a new generation of architects that have prompted discussion and provided fresh impetus across Latin America.
To enter the competition, send an email to RIBA.Student@riba.org with ‘FREE BOOK’ in the subject line, and your name and address in the email. The winner will be announced in the next newsletter.
