[D64, Feb 19, Buenos Aires/Argentina]
National library. Oh what a unique building. It reminded me of the slaughter house in Shanghai. Love the chairs, lounges etc – a series of classic design of mid century.
Weirdly they destroyed an old building – used to be presidential residence so quite significant – to make the way for this industrial looking structure built in the 50′s. Hea
Visited a few floors but couldn’t go inside the library to read some books.
Had lunch in cafe, again the purpose designed chairs just for the cafe probably.
Then fine art museum, just on the opposite side of the big avenue. On the lawn, two young dancers rehearsing their dance, with horse head. So powerful even Nina became a fan, watched for quite a while.
