Cuba is one of the most densely populated countries in Latin America. A large percentage of the population lives in Havana and the number continuously grows. Paradoxically, the increase of the Cuban population has taken place within the same building mass the city contained in 1959. This is the story about Havana, and how her inhabitants have re-invented their city according to their needs. People have used the city as a framework within which to build and transform their dwellings, and thus Havana continues to develop, in a constant interplay between decay and construction.
