AN ARCHITECTURAL DIALOG; A STUDY ON URBAN IN-FILL WITHIN HAVANA

CRONK DUCH ARCHITECTURE

The intent of this study is to analyze intervention within historical texts during periods of architectural, social, and economic transitions and to start a dialog as to what extent architectural style could define a post transition architectural identity. The essay will examine case studies within Venice, Italy and Havana, Cuba, cities that have both experienced defining transitions in the past, to determine how their architectural character was ultimately affected. The conclusion is to create a conceptual project within Havana that responds to a current set of influences and frames the argument for 1) how the idea of architectural style plays a role in the development of the design solution and 2) how “style” could potentially contribute in defining a new architectural identity for Havana as it moves through a period of significant change.

ST AUGUSTINE'S SKYSCRAPER
CRONK DUCH ARCHITECTURE

We love a good story at Cronk Duch. Creating a story becomes one of the key foundations of architecture and initiates an important opportunity for dialog about architecture and urban place. The unique location of Cronk Duch Architecture's St. Augustine Studio, within the 1926 Florida National Bank building on the Plaza de la Constitucion, allows an applicable analysis in our focus of urban fabrics. As historic St. Augustine's first and only Skyscraper it provides the catalyst to our discussion of urban intervention (new buildings added within historic contexts) and its effects on “Place”. This effort is to collectively appreciate, advocate, study and ultimately create responsible architecture within these vital areas of our communities.

ST AUGUSTINE'S SKYSCRAPER
CRONK DUCH ARCHITECTURE

we love a good story at Cronk Duch. Creating (or reflecting on) a story becomes one of the key foundations of architecture and initiates an important opportunity for dialog about architecture and urban place. The unique location of Cronk Duch Architecture's St. Augustine Studio, within the 1926 Florida National Bank building on the Plaza de la Constitucion, allows a unique and applicable analysis in our focus on urban fabrics. As historic St. Augustine's first and only Skyscraper (as well as one of Florida's first) it provides the catalyst to our discussion of urban intervention (new buildings added within historic contexts) and its effects on Place. This effort is to collectively appreciate, advocate, study and ultimately create responsible architecture within these vital areas of our communities. Our goal in developing these stories is not an academic thesis of the places we visit and work but one of exposure and exploration. Is there a better place to start this dialog than within one of the first urban fabric and the place we work?
