Fair Concrete

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic has had to continually rebuild due to hurricanes, creating a permanent state of crisis and starting over without attachment. The dictatorship in 1930 and Hurricane San Zenón in 1930 led to the use of concrete as a symbol of progress, with modernist typologies employed in the buildings and monuments of the 1955 Feria de la Paz y Confraternidad del Mundo Libre. Today, the fairgrounds serve various governmental bodies during the day and illicit enterprises at night, defining a unique national identity of duality and contradictions.
