National Executive

We continue commenting on the building from where is it sent in Cuba for almost 40 years until survivor social revolution of 1959 and for being a very striking point within the urban spectrum habanero, is impossible to pass unnoticed in the eyes of any person arrival to the island for the first time. The magnificence of the building of the today Museum of the revolution, with the obvious wealth of decorative elements in their facades are owes largely to veiled competition that always existed in the first half of the last century between the Havana Government and the National Executive in terms of functionality and aesthetic enhancement of its facilities. We talked about in previous work that the building began to be built to host the headquarters of the Government of the city and that it was on the whim of a first lady of the Republic that became a House of Government of the nation. Ernesto Asbert was the name of the capital Governor in the second decade of the century passed, this knowing what had been preparing as mansion of the Executive in the areas that today occupies the National Capitol moved his chips so that the building of Mayor of Havana was not looked at in the future.

There he was, after that is through concluded the transfer of powers over the building, which make some changes as the construction of a fourth floor that somehow breaks with design patterns from the rest of the building and the replacement of some details in the decoration of its interiors.For example: replace the initials GP (provincial government) by the letters RC (Republic of Cuba). .
