CRITICAL APPRAISAL:

"Máximo Gómez Vocational School in Camagüey, designed by architect Reinaldo Togores culminates this progressive architectonic maturing process. Based on the sum and verification of anterior experiences regarding the use of previously defined functional structures, the designer could concentrate in the working up of details, in the constructive finishes, in the articulation of nodes, in the subtle chromatic treatment."
Roberto Segre, La Escuela en Forma, CUBA INTERNACIONAL magazine, August 1976.

"Architect Togores has designed important buildings for Cuban school architecture . . . He has also worked in the sphere of furniture and industrial design and as an associate professor of Basic Design at the Faculty of Architecture, making important contributions to its theoretical and experimental wealth, above all in fields like planar or spatial tessellations and color."
ARQUITECTURA Y URBANISMO magazine, I.S.P.J.A.E., No. 1-2, 1983.

"A most elaborate conceptual inquiry, tending to transcend the dialectics between standard and uniqueness, between reticulate pattern and symbolic particularity appears in the experiences due to Heriberto Duverger and Reinaldo Togores . . ."
"Togores has designed the "Máximo Gómez" Vocational School (1976), defined as to its material support by the standard school building system "Girón", but introducing a conception that is specific to this school. Due to the concentration and the distribution of its facilities, due to its architecture, there can be no doubt as to its being, right now, the best in Cuba . . . Here it is evident not only the desire to overcome the stereotyped reiteration of the constructive elements and the design of details that single out the image of the school, but also the wish to attain the identification of the social group with the building."
Roberto Segre, Arquitectura y Urbanismo de la Revolución Cubana, editora PUEBLO Y EDUCACION, Havana, 1989.
