Carlos Paez Vilaro Renaissance Man from Uruguay.


Architecture by Carlos Paez Vilaro

I'm writing this entry to present the work of the great Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro. His work encompasses architecture, wall paintings, murals, sculptures, books, and music (Candombe Afro-Uruguayan music).

His architecture are tourist sites now. He bought land at the price of a carton of cigarettes, per square foot. He never uses drafts to build. His architecture would be what I would desire as a dream home.

His son was one of the rugby players involved with the cannabalism episode in the Andies.

His website is at: Carlos Paez Vilaro
