Ava Gardens

Ava Gardens is Concordia’s first project in Cuba. The gardens will include a restaurant with outdoor seating overlooking a large natural garden peppered with the cultural centerpieces of the museum: vintage neon signs and cars.

As Cuba opens up to economic exchange with the United States, the image of Havana lined with classic cars from the 1950’s could slowly give way to contemporary consumerism. Ava Gardens will capture and preserve a slice of Cuban history and reinterpret it through the work of a local artist, who Concordia is working with in a Design/Build relationship.

This project is currently in Schematic Design.
