Art Deco is synonym of modernity and development of design. The new ideologies and the progress of the world society during the 1920’s and the 1940’s of the last century conditioned the art that revolutionized everything that was created until that date.
In Cuba, Art Deco had its first steps in graphs and fashion, but very soon it was used in architecture, a few years after the International Exhibition of Paris, 1925.
The development of this style motivated the creation of a group called HABANADECO, integrated by architects, historians, artists and people who simply loved Art Deco. This group was dedicated to the study and promotion of Art Deco’s values in Cuba, as well as preserving the legacy of the Cuban patrimony.
