Homage to Clorindo Testa at Centro Cultural Recoleta

(Photo by hhzorrilla)

Clorindo Testa was a renowned Italian-Argentina architect and artist who is known for his modernist architectural style. Some of the buildings he is known for include the Argentine National Library, the Bank of London and South America, the remodeling of the Centro Cultural Recoleta, the neighboring Buenos Aires Design Center and the Centro Cultural Konex.

Testa was born in Naples in 1923 but moved to Buenos Aires with his family when he was but a few months old. He studied architecture in Argentina, at the Buenos Aires University and was influenced by Le Corbusier’s modern style. From the 50’s onward, he also painted and drew, following an Informalist style and choosing objects such as bicycles, tools and bridges as his motifs. In April 2013 the architect and artist passed away at the age of 83.

The Centro Cultural Recoleta is showcasing an exhibit of Testa’s work as part of the architecture biennial that is taking place until the 13th of October. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings and building designs and is being held until the 20th of October. The cultural center is open from Tuesday to Friday from 2pm to 9pm and on weekends from midday to 9pm. Junín 1930, Recoleta.  4803 1040.
