It looks like design and architecture of Latin America has recently received a major attention. First, it was the show "New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft, and Art in Latin American," still exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design, which comes to explore contemporary and conceptual design in such centers as Brazil, Venezuela, and Columbia. Next will be an exhibition focusing on Latin American architecture, open at MoMA in the spring. In 1955 the Museum staged "Latin American Architecture Since 1945," a seminal survey of modern architecture in that part of the world. To commemorate the event's 60th anniversary, MoMA will return to the region to offer a complex overview of the positions, debates, and architectural creativity from Mexico and Cuba to the Southern Cone between 1955 and the early 1980s.
