I audited Narciso's survey of architectural history and also his in-depth course on Modernist movements in European architecture. I consulted with him on my Taliesin I book. I also got to know him through Cuban-American friends He was actually descended from Cuban nobility. A charming and erudite man.

His book on Louis Sullivan is slight, but very interesting.

I met him in '86 at the last of Tom Monaghan's symposia. It was hard conversing; by that time he was beginning to lose his hearing, but hadn't, apparently, progressed to wearing an aid.
