Its glossy pages pay tribute to the island nation's glamorous mansions and elaborate interiors . . . The result of two years of research and multiple on-site explorations, Mallea's work brings to light exquisite Beaux Arts palaces, modernist mansions, and even a spectacular beach house (now used as a restaurant). - Architectural DigestHermes Mallea's Great Houses of Havana is one of several books on that city to appear this season, but it may be the most personal. . . . For Mallea, a Cuban-American architect who is based in New York, the book grew out of a longstanding fascination with his family's history. What you will see is a selective survey of elegant Havana houses, from the traditional Spanish Colonial courtyard house of the 19th century to the Modernist-influenced houses of the 1950s. - The New York Times Style MagazineWith photographs archival and new, the book documents the astonishing ways in which the prevailing styles of the day were adapted to the island's distintive climate and culture. Here, originality ruled. - VerandaDocuments the evolution of Cuban design through a fantastic mix of contemporary and historical images. - New York Magazine
