Excursions to Lamas House (2019)

The Lamas house is not only one of our favorite buildings throughout the country, but also a mysterious and essential building, which we have not completely understood. Made in 1958 by the architect Humberto Alonso, it is a masterpiece of Cuban brutalism.

After more than 20 years without anyone living, along with a group of students from the faculty, we have been visiting, while at night a homeless person sleeps in it and breaks the windows to cook with firewood.

From these encounters came the failed attempt to make the exhibition “Adoration and Desecration of the Lamas House”.
