Architecture of the Panama Canal Zone


The civic and residential architectural structures, spanning the early decades of the 1900s through the 1960s, that defined America´s presence in the
Panama Canal Zone are examined. Through over 1,000 images and detailed text, explore the major civic architectural achievements, including the Beaux Arts styles Administration Building and Prado,
Gorgas Hospital, Balboa School, YMCA, Union Church, and Panama Railway Station. Residential architecture is also looked at, including the re-purposing of the French structures that remained from France´s efforts to construct a sea-level canal, and the permanent concrete block, mid-century
houses built for employees and their families. An array of renowned American architects and
architectural practices created these civic and residential structures, including James Renwick, Jr., Austin W. Lord, Bertram Goodhue, Delano & Aldrich, Edward Durell Stone, and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. This Book is a great resource for architecture and history lovers.
