It was commissioned by Dr. Pedro Domingo Curutchet, a surgeon, in 1948 and included a small medical office on the ground floor. The house consists of four main levels with a courtyard between the house and the clinic. The building faces the Paseo del Bosque park. The main facade incorporates a brise soleil.

One of a kind
As the directions from Buenos Aires to La Plata are terrible and we couldnt find the right bus we gave up and never went here. The stress in just finding the bus station and not finding the right bus put us off. I have no idea if it would have been worth 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.
an architectural masterpiece!!!
Interesting place, but poor management
It's very different kind of tourist place. Entry fee is little costly that too sometimes without receipts. But the creativity is amazing by considering the time of design.
