Today's archidose #824: Latin American Architecture

This morning I attended the press preview of the Latin America in Construction exhibition opening March 29 at the Museum of Modern Art. I'll have photos and comments on the MoMA show later in the week, but the visit inspired me to search out some photos of Latin American architecture in the archidose Flickr pool, though not necessarily ones in the show. By chance, Jonathan Reid added a bunch of photos from South America to the pool recently, and some of those are shown below.

  1. Comment from Felipe Jullian (accidentally deleted during moderation): Hello John ,form chile I really suggest not to put as an example that building (Municipalidad de Vitacura in Santiago) its not a good example of the quality of some specific individuals ( I don’t have any kind of problem with the architects of the building , I just do think it’s not an asset to the city
    It blocks the view of the park and it’s out of scale in a way you can’t imagine ( just see the picture)
    I leave a nice and elegant example in the very same park,
