Brazil Cultural Immersion
September 30-October 13, 2004
Visit the former National Schools of Art today known as ISA ( Superior Institute of Art). The schools were designed and built by the Cuban Ricardo Porro and the Italians Roberto Gottardi and Vittorio Garatti from 1961 to 1965, in the former affluent neighborhood of Country Club Park(today known as Cubanacán), specifically on the grounds of the Havana Country Club golf course. Only two of the schools were completed, the rest being abandoned and awaiting restoration funding recently approved by the Cuban government. After 40 years, the original team of architects get together again to collaborate in the most important architecture work from the Cuban Revolution.
