"1998 Premio Bienal: Historia" Both an architectural and a social history, this book examines the social implications of the elaborate design, construction, and decor details of Colombian republican houses of the 19th and 20th centuries. The elegant hallways, warm bedrooms, and eclectic combinations of foreign styles are the main characteristics of Colombia's post-colonial homes and an evocative means to rediscover the majesty of Colombia's Belle Epoque. Una historia tanto de arquitectura como de una sociedad, este libro fotografico ilumina las implicaciones sociales de los elaborados detalles de diseno, construccion, y decorativos propios de las casas republicanas de Colombia durante los siglos diecinueve y veinte. Los pasillos elegantes, acogedoras recamaras, y la combinacion eclectica de estilos foraneos que caracterizaron las casas post-coloniales son una manera evocativa de redescubrir la majestad de la Bella epoca en Colombia.
