NEO COLONIAL REVIVAL
These are the buildings which impersonate
that late nineteenth century Imperial International Style which was spare
and fast. A style consisting of simplified buildings built in every tropical
outpost from partially prefabricated parts, corrugated iron and sticks.
impersonations are, however, only stylistic - my revival is in reinforced
concrete and the roofs are tiled. The simple and regular grids of
these buildings - where each module may contain a room, a stair,
a double volume or a service space - impose an overall abstract
order on them. Yet in spite of that dominant order each space accommodates
to its special circumstances and this is demonstrated in the façades.
