Overview

1998 Premio Bienal: Historia
 
Both an architectural and a social history, this book examines the social implications of the elaborate design, construction, and decor details of Colombian republican houses of the 19th and 20th centuries. The elegant hallways, warm bedrooms, and eclectic combinations of foreign styles are the main characteristics of Colombia's post-colonial homes and an evocative means to rediscover the majesty of Colombia’s Belle Époque.
 

Una historia tanto de arquitectura como de una sociedad, este libro fotográfico ilumina las implicaciones sociales de los elaborados detalles de diseño, construcción, y decorativos propios de las casas republicanas de Colombia durante los siglos diecinueve y veinte. Los pasillos elegantes, acogedoras recámaras, y la combinación ecléctica de estilos foráneos que caracterizaron las casas post-coloniales son una manera evocativa de redescubrir la majestad de la Bella época en Colombia.
