Map of the world in Havana formed of an archipelago (yellow), a continent (blue) and islands (orange)

The Vienna convention for diplomatic relations implies that an embassy building and ground should be ‘treated as the territory of their State’. 
Even though very few Sates own the land or property used as embassy in Cuba, the Vienna convention supersedes Cuban laws. Therefore, the presence of 120 embassies representing around 140 States in Havana can be described as a micro-world: a condensed, geographically reorganized, version of the world of Cuba. It is a geography directly responding to, and embedded in, Cuban history and politics. Therefore, arguably, the map of the ‘world’ in Havana is more representative to Cuba than the well-known world map within which it is drawn.
Different characteristics of the urban presence of embassy buildings in Havana can be mapped in a Cuban atlas of diplomacy:
Cubanacan (contient), an exclusive and luxurious part of Havana hosts ambassador’s residences, Miramar (continent), a quiet residential area accommodates most embassies in relatively friction-less proximity and Vedado (archipelago) a lively neighborhood is home to a few scattered embassies in tentative conversation with their context. Three embassy buildings are isolates at different edges of Havana: Spain, The US and Russia (islands)

Miramar, Havana Cuba

Vedado, Havana Cuba

'Mapping some of the zone incentives onto the city potentially changes its wiring and disposition, inviting more channels of information, circumstance, and contradiction that are the hallmarks of open, public urban space.'

Cubanacan, Havana Cuba
