Independent Publishing Group, 1996 - Architecture - 279 pages
The past half-century of domestic architecture in Colombia involves the works of Rogelio Salmona, Dicken Castro, Hernán Vieco, and Fernando Martínez Sanabria, creators who have given unique identities to their interpretations of the modern home. This tribute reveals the challenges they faced and their remarkable solutions: houses which blend functionalism, creativity, and simplicity in the forging of spaces which are a pleasure to inhabit.
