Riassunto: The past half-century of domestic architecture in Colombia involves the works of Rogelio Salmona, Dicken Castro, Hernán Vieco, and Fernando Martínez Sanabria, creators who have given unique identities to their interpretations of the modern home. This tribute reveals the challenges they faced and their remarkable solutions: houses which blend functionalism, creativity, and simplicity in the forging of spaces which are a pleasure to inhabit.
From the Inside Flap:
As the twentieth century draws to a close, it is timely to consider the term "modern house." Among other things, it brings to mind what a house offers in terms of comfort and ease of living. We all live in a modern way, but all of us do not inhabit a modern house.
To speak of a modern house in Colombia in the 1940s would have been to speak of change, adventure, and accepting what modernization had to offer-- to welcome the house of the future. There were, fortunately, a number of individuals with a sufficient understanding of the new, exciting movement in architecture who not only had the requisite funds but also the willingness to challenge accepted norms, and who created the foundation for our modern architecture. Much of what is recorded in this volume came to be through several farsighted people open-minded enough to accept the principles of modern architecture as stated by European architects such as Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto and the great American master architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
With remarkable sensitivity toward local raw materials, a sober understanding of the expectations of their clients, and the rigorous discipline imposed by the climate, Colombian architects of the 1940s and 1950s designed and erected houses of an integrity and stylistic vision difficult to comprehend in our own materialistic time.
The houses featured in this book have a few things in common: their design principles are modern beyond a doubt, they are testimony to skilled and dedicated craftsmanship, they exhibit an enduring commitment to principle on the part of the owners, and they display a level of comfort and functionality that will surprise and delight anyone seeking quality in design today. This volume offers a panorama of modern architectural design of unexpected courage and vision-- as relevant today as in its time of creation.
