To speak of a modern house in Colombia in the 1940s would have been to speak of change, adventure, and accepting what modernization had to offer-- to welcome the house of the future. There were, fortunately, a number of individuals with a sufficient understanding of the new, exciting movement in architecture who not only had the requisite funds but also the willingness to challenge accepted norms, and who created the foundation for our modern architecture. Much of what is recorded in this volume came to be through several farsighted people open-minded enough to accept the principles of modern architecture as stated by European architects such as Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto and the great American master architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

With remarkable sensitivity toward local raw materials, a sober understanding of the expectations of their clients, and the rigorous discipline imposed by the climate, Colombian architects of the 1940s and 1950s designed and erected houses of an integrity and stylistic vision difficult to comprehend in our own materialistic time.
