For 30 days in the summer of 2015, architectural designer Abby Gordon traversed the island of Cuba as Shepley Bulfinch’s 2015 Howe Traveling Fellow. Gordon’s photos document her course of travel and her investigation into the 1959 Cuban Revolution’s impact on the country’s infrastructure, and the way Cubans congregate and interact with their surroundings.

Gordon’s 560-mile exploration began in the eastern end of the island and followed the Revolutionaries’ route leading west. Her trip ended in Havana, Cuba’s largest metropolis and the city Fidel captured with the backing of the rest of the country. Along the way, Gordon met government officials, architects, historians, students, and locals of diverse backgrounds who aided her exploration. Their warmth allowed her to uncover social truths, explore decaying buildings, and experience urban, mountain, and rural settings. The photos presented in Road to Revolution aim to provide insight into the syncretic forces that shape Cuba’s architecture and the way its diverse community lives and engages with the physical environment.

RSVP

Hosted at BSA Space, the exhibition is presented by the Boston Society of Architects/AIA in partnership with Shepley Bulfinch. It includes maps and photos that capture the rich visual quality of the cities Gordon visited on her journey. Light refreshments will be served.

The Road to Revolution exhibition is on view February 23, 2017 to July 23, 2017.
