The Nicolás Quintana digital collection contains photographs and slides from Cuban modernist architect Nicolás Quintana (1925-2011). Trained at the University of Havana, Quintana took charge of his father’s firm Moenck & Quintana and eventually worked for the Junta Nacional de Planificación, where he was involved in an urban planning initiative created by fellow architect Nicolás Arroyo. Quintana left Cuba in 1960 and lived in Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Miami, where he continued to work as an architect. From 1986 to 2010, he was a professor at the School of Architecture at Florida International University.
Selected images related to Club Kawama; Residential Yacht Club, Varadero; and street scenes, landscapes and architectural photographs of Trinidad, have been digitized. Additional materials from the collection are available for research upon request at the University of Miami Libraries Cuban Heritage Collection. A description of the collection is available in the Nicolás Quintana Papers finding aid.
