Alonso, Pedro Ignacio., Palmarola, Hugo. Panel

Pap. Architectural Association 2014

Book ID: 97652

This book focuses on a particular aspect of the concrete panel's history, namely those systems exported from Soviet Russia into Cuba and then on to Chile in the 1960s and 1970s. Written from the point of view of the worker as much as the architect, and containing an incredible visual panoply of archival photographs, stills, cartoons, sketches and drawings, as well as oral histories from its surviving protagonists, the book offers a fascinating portrait of an architectural and political history whose symbolic and physical register all along is a concrete panel.
