  • If you like Frank Llyod Wright or Le Corbusier, then this is the place for you to visit. This is the house that Vilamajo built for himself.  more »
  • The House of the architect Vilamajó is worth a visit, especially if it is guided by an architecture student (Karen), which transmits her enthusiasm and competition by calling our attention to distribution of spaces (exterior/interior, main service area), axis of the building, floor, original furniture, possible links with Freemasonry and Alchemy, as well as details of construction that may have gone unnoticed and thanks to the guide we have been able to appreciate and enjoy. It is, of course, a beautiful and interesting example of housing designed and inhabited by its own author, of a modernity that impresses. According to the booklet which gave us there yesterday, the opening hours is as follows: Wednesday and Saturday from 10.00 to 16.00 h., with guided tours for groups from 3 o'clock people point (10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 h.).

  • House of the architect Vilamajó, today transformed into a museum. It is an example of how European modernity, in some cases, filmed with figurative elements, some anacronias and different references to what is canonically known. Guided visits - should be consulted beforehand - but also recommend go it to taking each time to better appreciate the work. Take advantage of the proximity of the Parque Rodó to visit, the evening there was a market with furnishing, books and meals. 100

  • Inflatable visit for fans of architecture and for the not so much. A very interesting life told through a walk by his house and his work. Excellent guides, very good work from the Faculty of architecture. It was flawless

  • The same House, modern singular work, declared a national historic landmark in 1990, is the protagonist and the ideal setting to host a permanent exhibition on the work of Vilamajó, and to periodically receive temporary exhibitions related not only to the architecture and design, but also to other related areas. There are currently guided tours, book presentations, events associated with the neighborhood cultural circuits that include, in addition to the Faculty of architecture, design and urban planning (FADU), the Faculty of engineering, the National Museum of Visual Arts, the exhibition space open-pit of Parque Rodó, and events in collaboration with other museums and cultural institutions in our country and abroad.

  • Superb villa d a time where the architectes embellished the city. When you see hdeux buildings that replace villas like this one say that in 30 years we won't visit much. Fortunately in 3o years recent buildings will be in such a State (when you see the quality of the construction, can 6etre 20 years enough!) what we'll have to tear it down!
