The UNPHU Becomes the Stage for the Launching of INPOSDOM´s Postage Stamp Commemorating Dominican Architecture

 

The Dominican Postal Institute (INPOSDOM) put into circulation a postage stamp commemorating Dominican Architecture, dedicated to Architect Guillermo González Sánchez, in its second edition.

The ceremony was held in the School of Architecture and the Arts of the Pedro Henríquez Ureña National University (UNPHU), where Architect González was one of its founding professors, and to whom one of the school´s workshops is dedicated.

The event was led by Architect Raúl de Moya, president of the Pedro Henríquez Ureña Dominican University Foundation (FUDHU); Dr. José Rafael Espaillat, UNPHU´s Vice Rector for Management, representing the Rector, Architect Miguel Fiallo Calderón; Licenciado Eduardo Fernández representing Dr. Modesto Guzmán, Director General of INPOSDOM; and Architect Mauricia Domínguez, president of the DOCOMOMO Dominicano.

The head table also included Architect George González, son of Guillermo González Sánchez; Licenciada Leticia Peña, Assistant Director General of Customs and member of the Board of Directors of INPOSDOM; and Architect Omar Rancier, dean of the UNPHU School of Architecture and the Arts.

Docomomo-do is the Dominican Committee for the Documentation and Preservation of Buildings, Sites, and Barrios, of the Moderno Movement, founded in the Dominican Republic in 1996, whose purpose is the study, transmission, and documentation of architecture from the modernist movement, for purposes of conservation and protection of our national heritage, by recognizing their contributions to the changes and progress experienced during the last century.

The activity was attended by figures from the world of architecture, officials from the Post Office and DOCOMOMO, as well as the Dominican Philatelia Society, CODIA, the Society  of Architects, and members of the press.

The event was dedicated to Architect Guillermo González Sánchez, for his contributions to architecture and urban planning, who has been recognized as the creator of the most important expression of modern Dominican architecture, and whose institutional and residential buildings are characteristic of the city of Santo Domingo, including the previous Hotel Jaragua, a symbol of Dominican society until its disappearance in 1986.

Also part of his legacy are the former Ranfis Park (now the Eugenio María de Hostos Park); the Copello Building on El Conde Street, and the Center of the Heroes of Maimón and Estero Hondo (formerly the Fair of Peace and Fraternity of the Free World) built in 1955, as well as the Hotel Hamaca in Boca Chica and the Hotel Montaña in Jaragua, among many other buildings.
