Unfinished Spaces is a documentary spotlighting Cuba’s National Art Schools project, designed in the wake of Castro’s revolution. The schools have been neglected and nearly forgotten in the ensuing decades. The film explores the Cuban Revolution and its influence on the Schools' construction, and even more poignantly, traces the way the Schools shaped the identities and careers of the architects who envisioned them. We also see the promise and the challenge of historic preservation in Cuba, and the struggle to save the Schools before they are lost forever.

After the movie (86 minutes in length), Bob Mack, a principal with MacDonald & Mack Architects and Adjunct Professor in the School of Architecture, will discuss his own perceptions of Cuban preservation and work at the Art Schools based on his visits in 2010 and 2011.
