Landscape installation? Minimalist work of art? Garden? Well, yes. Tiny Taxonomy, a recent installation at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, “highlights the delicate beauty of mountain wildflowers and alpine perennials, common to rocky, high altitude environments, displayed in a field of 25 reflective cylinders.”

Clorindo Testa 1923-2013
Argentina’s, indeed Latin America’s, most famous architect passed away recently, leaving behind an amazing body of work, of which perhaps his most famous projects, both in Buenos Aires, are shown here: the Bibioteca Nacional, and the Banco de Londres y América del Sud.
Unmistakably Modern but also Baroque, as observed by Manuel Cuadra in his excellent monograph (referenced below), Testa’s architecture sits comfortably alongside Buenos Aires’s rich European (Parisian, really) urbanism while also conveying the sense of openness and optimism that are the hallmarks of the best and most successful of Modern Architecture.
