puerto rico

(Timothy Valentine)

“Many young Puerto Rican-born designers who study and work on the United States mainland or abroad are giving up jobs there with prestigious firms to work on the island, which has a population of 3.5 million. For some, moving back means an opportunity to build on the island’s strong Modernist tradition; for others, it is a chance to address polemical issues of nationalism and identity in design. Most agree that it is simply easier to hang out their shingles in a place where they have friends and family. Whatever the motivation, there’s something profoundly comforting about coming home. […] Old San Juan is an almost perfectly preserved enclave of 16th-century architecture. Other parts of the capital have leafy neighborhoods with a mix of historic and contemporary homes that, regardless of period, best capture island living: generous outdoor living and dining rooms with natural light and ventilation. […] The clean, blocky volumes say high Modernist; the muted green and ochre paint scheme suggests Spanish colonial; the tiny punched openings in the guest wing are vaguely Arab. The wave-patterned patio paving is a traditional Puerto Rican technique called arcamása, a chunky mix of concrete, smashed clay roof tiles and bits of broken glass typically used to pave outdoor plazas. It is also a nod to the wavy patterns of the seaside promenade in Rio de Janeiro of the Brazilian landscape master Roberto Burle-Marx.”

–Raul Barreneche, from “Puerto Rican Architects Return to Green Pastures,” April 20, 2000 New York Times.
