(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Visit Curutchet House, an architectural wonder designer by Le Corbusier, constructed in 1949. The mainly white house features four floors and incorporates a ramp and spiral staircase located between the house and the medical office on the first floor. It took four years to build and is the only work by the architect in Argentina. The facade of the house is a brise-soleil, a feature that is designed to reduce heat by deflecting sunlight.

  • Unique and very valuable work. It is the place that you can't miss to visit in La Plata, mainly if it is linked or feels interest in design.

  • Very interesting for architects and engineers. Designed by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier than it is in the city of La Plata. It is recognised by UNESCO. But unfortunately there is no sign that identifies it.

  • The only work in south america for Le Corbusier (pioneer swiss architect) If you are foreigner you'll pay 150 pesos, if local 60 or 30, if local student 15 pesos. You have about 30 minutes to visit all the house alone. Take photos and set a little bit on the terrace. There are sketches for the place exhibited on 2nd floor, plus some of the house plans & sections.
  • Es linda.
