El reuso en la arquitectura patrimonial: oportunidad y riesgo - Menéndez García, Madeline
Around the urban centrality it is produced certain functional dynamics that are
inherent to every social and economical developments. Essential components of these

Centros históricos: comunidad gestión y participación - Rey Rodríguez, Georgina
It is well known that historic centres house communities of a great physical and
social coherence who carry a historic memory, an identity and a traditional knowledge.
Within the rehabilitation process of these centres, urban management has
achieved a leading role due to the fact that its efficiency greatly determines the materialization
of their plans and projects. With this aim, it is required to have a management
model that takes profit of the endogenous resources and promotes participation
and self-management by the community, local governments and stakeholders.
The achievements gotten by the Cuban historic centres have produced a positive
change, introducing new dynamics within the heritage management and...

gradual increase of the urban complexity, during the last eighty years; therefore his

most contemporary vision as urban historical landscape. The present article proposes

and restoration and other writings, to base the analyses, studies and specific
methods, necessary for the conservation of the hereditary values accumulated on

urban landscape, urban planners can find the local spirit, and use...
Los paisajes históricos de la producción en Cuba - Sobrino Simal, Vicente Julián
This contribution on Historic Landscapes of Production in Cuba (HLPC) addresses
territory in its complexity as land-matter, domain-law, social-place and
space-production. In a space-time context �warehouse of time�, in which architectures,
machines, social groups and mentalities were inserted and institutionalized in
a particular demarcation that, over time, takes a historical-cultural resonance that
crystallizes in perceived landscape: in our case, we define this as Historical Landscapes
of Production. These landscapes are characterized by their morphogenesis,
the value of primary resources located therein, their planning and control logic, its
potential as matrix for connectivity and mobility, its infrastructure and the functionality
of economic processes developed in them. The patrimonialization of the...
La calzada del Cerro: esplendor y ocaso de La Habana neoclásica - Coyula Cowley, Mario; Rigol Savio, Isabel
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries a booming plantation economy developed
in western Cuba. There was a heavy increase in the population density, and an
educated and enterprising landowning Creole aristocracy consolidated itself. The
city grew beyond its walls, branching out along several different roads. The most
important of these roads ran to the southwest, a section of which took on the name
Calzada del Cerro. With a length of over three kilometers, the Calzada is the virtual
backbone of El Cerro. This district was the main exponent of Cuban neoclassical architecture.
No other main city in Latin America continues to have such a coherent

Reflexiones sobre el significado de centro histórico en Occidente y Oriente - Niglio, Olimpia
The definition of the historical center was claimed between the middle of the
XIXth century and the middle of the XXth century in the West, in particular in Europe.
In this time was started the industrial progress that had been promoter of the
significant debates on the relationship between historic and contemporary city. Very
important the international role of the professor Gustavo Giovannoni (1873-1947)
that had formulated the definition of the historical center, participating in international
conferences and promoting the dialogue between old and new. In Orient, particularly
in Japan, the definition «historical center» was introduced after the middle
of the XXth century, in the 70s. The definition...
Lo cubano en la arquitectura y dos tiempos en Santiago de Cuba - Orozco Melgar, María Elena
In the year 1791, the governor of the eastern department Juan Bautista Vaillant,
send a report to the Crown about the construction of the fourth cathedral. This report
would become a model document on the theory and defense of indigenous architecture
of Santiago de Cuba. For Francisco Prat Puig the project of City Hall (1951)
was a challenge that served to demonstrate in practice what it was the Cuban architecture
and its proper interpretation. He tried to building with antiseismic guarantees,
security and fireproofing. His training as an archaeologist allowed without knowing

Identificación de viviendas culturalmente representativas en Centros Históricos - García Santana, Alicia
The housings are the protagonist in historic urban centers. A policy of responsible
conservation is supposed to be able to identify the representative examples with
local, regional or national values. The aforementioned values derive from two categories:
the type and the typological integrity. The determination of the type and the
grade of typological integrity suppose knowledge of the process of historical configuration
of the house so that the authenticity of the asset can be evaluated. In the present
article will be studied the process of evolution of the courtyard house regarding
to its Spanish antecedent and the architectonic and documentary procedures for the
identification of cultural representative types...
Tiempos y coincidencias - Rojas Ávalos, Ángela
Last decades have produced an important practical activity on urban and architectural
heritage conservation in Cuba. Those internationally recognized achievements
have been supported by a developing and sometimes polemic theoretical corpus.
This is what has happened for instance in points of view with regard to in-fill of
contemporary architecture, tourism management, heritage categories and modern
movement. The aim of this paper is to try to characterize some of the theoretical approaches
mainly to heritage values and their relationship to international trends, with
a particular emphasis to authenticity and integrity, as part of current debate. Although
dangerous because of the possibility of arriving to wrong conclusions, it has
La recuperación del patrimonio monumental en Cuba - Rigol Savio, Isabel
Heritage conservation in Cuba appears during the first decades of the Twentieth
Century. Thanks to the intervention of an intellectual minority and few patrons,
some important monuments were restored. At the same time, valuable buildings are
lost under the official indifference or the common Modern trends from the Century�s
second half. In the fifties the Master Plan for Havana would have spoiled the values
of the City´s Historic Core, today a World Heritage site. After 1959 new entities
started to restore relevant landmarks. New protective laws were approved and
skilled personnel was trained. Since the eighties huge efforts have been developed
in Old Havana, Trinidad, Camagüey and Santiago...
