An unusual and contradictory project took place in Cuba between 1980 and 1993: the creation of a Western architecture without a market, the launching into orbit of a collective utopia ignored by the socialist State, the activation of a movement that began as criticism of the official urban planning of the time. And it is back in the spotlight today like the sword of Damocles hanging over the constructions of State capitalism in sight. Among other things, The Parallel Utopia is an archaeology that digs through several projects designed by the generation of architects born into the Cuban Revolution and who intellectually blossomed in the 1980s. Free admission.
