REPORT FROM PUERTO RICO
by Walter Robinson
New York’s wintry weather prompts fond memories of a quick trip last November to sunny Puerto Rico, where you could get a tan in a mere half-hour on a mountainside patio. The terrace in question is attached to a new house designed by Jorge Pardo, the Cuban-born California artist whose taste for bright colors and streamlined shapes has made him the go-to guy for contemporary art-world design. The project was commissioned by psychiatrist and art collector César Reyes and his wife Mima, who were celebrating with a brunch and an open house on Sunday, Nov. 27, 2005.
