Biography  
Clorindo Testa


Clorindo Testa is best known as Argentina's foremost modernist architect whose internationally celebrated buildings include the Bank of London and the Biblioteca Nacional de la Republica Argentina in Buenos Aires.  He is also a renowned plastic artist.

One work, created in 1976, represents work he did while a part of the Grupo CAYC.  "Treating the visual aspect of works of art as just one element in order to demonstrate the complexity and richness of the creative process, they took a wide view of Latin American culture that spanned the cosmogony of Pre-Columbian societies to the technological and scientific concepts of the late 20th century."  The Grove Dictionary of Art, 2000.
