Occasionally, stories unfold more often as a result of happenstance than what reason would dictate in the chronology of an event that took place at a precise place and time. I feel however, that very few things we do can be exempt from the essence of an era. It is in this spirit that Breaking Boundaries, an exhibition by Cuban-American photographer Flor Mayoral creates the discourse between the works of two great architects of Cuban origin. I am referring to the Miami Marine Stadium, by Hilario Candela and situated in Key Biscayne in Miami since 1963, and the stadium at Parque Deportivo José Martí (built 1960) located in the Vedado area of Havana, facinf the city's seawall and conceived by Octavio Buigas.
