Latin America’s Moment Arrives Again


by Leonardo Finotti

Sixty years ago, the Museum of Modern Art in New York presented Latin American Architecture Since 1945, turning attention to a part of the world that seemed ready to assume a major role in architecture and design. Military coups and economic turmoil in the 1960s and ’70s, though, put an end to such optimism. Now the region is a dynamic force once again, and the museum has mounted an ambitious exhibition, Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980. São Paulo–based Leonardo Finotti took new photographs of many of the buildings in the show.
