  • The Curutchet House makes me angry, because it is Unesco heritage but there is not even a sign outside, is one of the symbols of the city and there to visit it, but if someone does not know exactly where this, passes to the side without realizing it!

  • Beautiful visit. The guide that we attended kindly told us about the origin of the House and answered our questions with precision. We could then go the House alone while we wanted to and take many photographs, which are very beautiful because the House has an excellent natural lighting. Excited to learn a work of Le Corbusier in our country, enter the House with this special distribution is really wonderful

  • Only built work by arq. Le Corbusier in La Plata (and America) that will definitely advance in time. Built between 1949 / 1955 surprises even today with details of design, distribution and spatial proposal which incorporates the square and a tree in a small urban lot, while solving a complex program (clinic physician + family home) even in its more small details (account with a drying of clothes in the service sector, taking advantage of the heating of the House).

  • 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.
  • I didn't get a chance to go inside
  • Excellent House, only work by Le Corbusier in Latin America, and now declared a world heritage by the UNESCO
