The Modernist Homes of Havana

In the 1950s Cuba was riding high, with one of the highest per capita incomes of any Caribbean country and a thriving nightlife; there was also a boom in modernist architecture. In 1957, the last private residence in Havana to be designed by Cuban architect Ricardo Porro was finished. Then the revolution happened and in the 60 subsequent years time appears to have stood still.
