THE ARCHITECTURE OF SAN JUAN DE PUERTO RICO: FIVE CENTURIES OF URBAN AND ARCHITECTURAL EXPERIMENTATION. Arleen Pabon-Charneco. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017.

Publisher's description: As San Juan nears the 500th anniversary of its founding, Arleen Pabon-Charneco explores the urban and architectural developments that have taken place over the last five centuries, transforming the site from a small Caribbean enclave to a sprawling modern capital. As the oldest European settlement in the United States and second oldest in the Western Hemisphere, San Juan is an example of the experimentation that took place in the American "borderland" from 1519 to 1898, when Spanish sovereignty ended. The author also investigates post-1898 examples to explore how architectural ideas were exported from the mainland United States. Pabon-Charneco covers the varied architectural periods and styles, aesthetic theories and conservation practices of the region and explains how the development of the architectural and urban artifacts reflect the political, cultural, social and religious aspects that metamorphosed a small military garrison into a urban center of international significance.
