1950’s architecture

if you are into 1950’s architecture, then you must make a visit to the hotel riviera in havana – it still has all the original details from when it was originally designed in the 1950’s, pre the revolution.  there is a wonderful dining room, cabaret room and an amazing swimming pool, still with its diving board.  because of the lack of money in cuba, there hasn’t been the massive regeneration and modernisation of the city like the rest of the world, so its a great discovery to find things just as they were designed over 60 years ago.
