Casapueblo by lorrainemd Casapueblo by lorrainemd
Taken at Casa Puebla in Punta Ballena, Uruguay. It was created by the Uruguayan artist, Carlos Paez Vilaró. His main objective was to create a sculpture itself to live in, where he would have the chance to paint and sit around with friends.
It now serves as a hotel. We stayed for one night on my recent trip to Argentina and Uruguay. It was gorgeous....unlike anything else I have ever seen. Some compare it to Santorini, but it is much more Suessical than that.

If you would like to see more images from the trip:

This building is beautiful - I like the way it looks like it's just molded out of clay. And your shot of it against that beautiful blue sky is perfect.

oooohhh! i'm uruguayan. hehe. only one thing: it's "Casapueblo" someting like "housetown", jaja...
it's a beautiful photo of a beautiful place (i've only seen it from outside, it's not exactly a place made for us uruguayan working class, jejeje), with all the thing i don't like about Páez Vilaró as a person, he's a great artist.

i'm very proud you liked my pretty little unknown country, i'm off to see more pictures of your trip!!
