  2. What an interesting sculpture! Gaia is an appropriate name for it. I also like the facade of the museum. I guess it's travertine.

  5. Thanks for the comments.

    Unseen Rajasthan: I guess you are in the travel business. Your link is to the web site of a travel company.

    Buenos Aires Photoblog: Travertine? I think it is plain old concrete. In any event, I discovered it was designed in the 60's by the local architect Hanns Schönecker.

    joo: You are not the only one to be taken by it. It usually has a couple of children playing on it.

    Don and Krise, JM: Good that I can pass on a little of the local art to the world.

  6. Thanks for the additional information. So, it's just plain old concrete? And the tiles? On a second glimpse it could also be granite or something.

  7. Buenos Aires: You have made me curious and I mean to ask about the architecture next time I visit the gallery. But it is currently closed for a couple of weeks.
