Hotels, Apartment Buildings And Private Houses
Hotel El Presidente, Acapulco, Mexico Architect: Juán Sordo Madaleno. Sculptor: Mathias Georitz This semi-abstract free-standing sculpture is cast in Concrete and painted. It is to the credit of the architect and the sculpture would have been lost against the architectural lines of the building. A simple white opaque screen greatly enhances the sculpture, while the building itself retains the characters of its general architectural background.
Apartment Building, Guatemala City, 1958. Architect: Carlos A. Haeussler. Artist: Roberto González Goyri. Solid sections of the façade covered with geometric abstract mosaics for the purpose of reducing their visual bulk and blending them with the overall design.
