Puerto Rico's Henry Klumb: A Modern Architect's Sense of Place

Puerto Rico's Henry Klumb: A Modern Architect's Sense of Place

Cesar A. Cruz  (Author)
This book follows Henry Klumb's life in architecture from Cologne, Germany to Puerto Rico. Arriving on the island, Klumb was a one-time German immigrant, a moderately successful designer, and previously a senior draftsman with Frank Lloyd Wright.


Over the next forty years Klumb would emerge as Puerto Rico's most prolific, locally well-known, and celebrated modern architect. In addition to becoming a leading figure in Latin American modern architecture, Klumb also became one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most accomplished proteges, and an architect with a highly attuned social and environmental consciousness. Cruz explores his life, works, and legacy through the lens of a sense of place, defined as the beliefs that people adopt, actions undertaken, and feelings developed towards specific locations and spaces. He argues that the architect's sense of place was a defining quality of his life and work, most evident in the houses he designed and built in Puerto Rico.


Puerto Rico's Henry Klumb offers a historical narrative, culminating in a series of architectural analyses focusing on four key design strategies employed in Klumb's work: vernacular architecture, the grid and the landscape, dense urban spaces, and open air rooms. This book is aimed at researchers, academics, and postgraduate students interested in Latin American architecture, modernism, and architectural history.
