This book gathers the experiences from CCNY’s Spring 2019 Urban Design travel studio, which worked in collaboration with CUJAE University of Habana. It includes a trip diary with the impressions and stories of the city, a photo journal, and the projects of both CCNY and CUJAE students, focusing on Habana Harbor future scenarios.
City College’s studio was based around the ongoing academic and planning work by Plan Maestro (Habana’s Historic Center Planning Office) and the School of Architecture of CUJAE University of Habana. Drawing from on-site research and building on the graduating students’ thesis work at CUJAE, the dialogue and proposals produced during the semester imagine new, forward-looking ideas relating to the city’s environmental resilience, economic prosperity, and social infrastructure. Documented in this publication, the work and thinking of both City College’s Urban Design Program and the collaborating CUJAE Architecture thesis work contributes to a larger collective conversation about Cuban urbanism today and in the future.
