CONNECTING CONCRETE: Modernist Architecture from Havana to Miami

Photographs by Silvia Ros

March 2024 – June 10, 2024


Concrete architecture in Miami and Havana exudes a poetic beauty that transcends the utilitarian nature of the material. Though distinct in their cultural and historical backgrounds, these cities share a common thread of embracing concrete as a canvas for artistic expression. 

Connecting Concrete: Modernist Architecture from Havana to Miami reminds us that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places—in the cracks and imperfections, in the interplay of light and shadow, and in the enduring spirit of these two vibrant cities. This exhibition is a testament to the resilience of both cities, the enduring power of architecture to inspire and captivate, and its ability to tell stories, evoke emotions, and transcend the boundaries of time and space.

This exhibition was curated, designed and written by Tim Hossler.
