Terraza Palace














Terraza Palace
Mar del Plata, Argentina. 1957-1960
Architect: Antonio Bonet Castellana
“The modern house has its origin in the bohemian ateliers under the attics. These spaces under the roof, which were declared uninhabitable and unhygienic by the architects [...] and the authorities, which were battered by speculation and the ambiguity of the law and constructed almost by chance, have the vitality that we seek in vain in the dwellings on lower floors, which are organised according to more rational criteria”. 

“La casa moderna tiene su origen en los ateliers bohemios, en las mansardas. Estos espacios bajo cubierta, declarados inhabitables y poco higiénicos por los arquitectos [...] y por la autoridad, y arrebatados a la especulación y a la ambigüedad de las leyes, edificados casi por casualidad, tienen aquella vitalidad que buscamos en vano en las viviendas de los pisos inferiores, organizados según criterios más racionales”.

Frank, Josef. “Das Haus als Weg und Platz”. Der Baumeister 29, 1931.
