Felipe Hernández’s Beyond Modernist Masters: Contemporary Architecture in Latin America, is an essential look into the shining history of modernism in Latin American architecture and culture. ”Latin America has been an important place for architecture for many decades. Masters like Barragán, Dieste, Lina Bo Bardi, and Niemeyer pointed the way for architectural design all over the world, and they continue to do so today. Their approach to colors, materials, and walls had a deep and lasting influence on architectural modernism. Since then, however – and especially in the last fifteen years – architecture on the continent has continued to evolve… Within this context, the book considers numerous projects that have prompted discussion and provided fresh impetus all across Latin America.”
