Catalan vaulting in Cuba


This is one of the most remarkable examples of catalan vaulting.

  1. In the U.S. the public TV station PBS had a program in their series Voces on the architects who designed and built the art school last month. The link is:

    It was a fascinating look at the projects and current attempts to restore the school. The show may be only available in the U.S. Thanks for educating us on this style of building as well as the Cuban project.
