That's f*cking beautiful. They don't make buildings like that anymore. That was actually mixing painting, sculpture and architecture into one. Lovely.

At certain angles some parts of the buildings actually resemble modernist paintings and graphic design

It's like brutalism mixed with art nouveau.

Monument to Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, Berlin, Germany.

I think this is Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe's first modernist design, built in 1926.
The Nazis tore it down in 1935.

Unfortunately, not much. Guatemala was always a tough place for architecture to develop correctly until now. The capital city changed three times in around 100 years and four times overall. In the end of the 1800's, some idiot dictators ordered to destroy several buildings and made ridiculous business deals with the US, Mexico and the UK. That basically destroyed the economy of the country, so not much buildings were built in those days. In the first decade of the XX century, Guatemala City was under redevelopment, but two earthquakes in 1917 and 1918 destroyed the city. After that, there was another good moment of development for us. In the 1930's and 40's, dictator Jorge Ubico built a lot of big, imposing buildings all around the city. Then, the Civil War started in 1960, and would finish in 1996, so there were 36 years of just a little number of towers being built. After 1996, the whole country had an economy boost, so Guatemala City started growing again. If you see the city today, it has lots of nice buildings under construction and a ton already built.

TL;DR if you're looking for old buildings in Guatemala, you'll mostly find lowrises from the 1800's and fascist architecture from the 30s and 40s

Fiat Tagliero Building, Asmara, Eritrea (1938)






There is a myth that the construction manager put pillars at the end of the wings against the design of the architect, but the architect convinced him to remove them by threatening him with a revolver
