Mid-Century Modern Freak

Atomic. Futurist. Populuxe. Googie. Modernist. Vintage Pop Culture.

One of Marcel Breuer’s lost masterpieces: The lucky clover shaped Parador Ariston in Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Created by Marcel Breuer between 1946 and 1947, together with associates Carlos Coire and Eduardo Catalano. This beautiful structure, in its heyday, was used as a restaurant and nightclub. It is painful to see the building in its current condition.  Unfortunately it has reached an advanced state of disrepair. It has been abandoned for at least 20 years and the effects of sea air, weather and vandalism have taken their toll. Lack of financial resources partially caused by the economic crisis in Argentina and, possibly, incompetence and negligence of the officials in charge of heritage conservation have made Marcel Breuer’s Parador Ariston into nothing more than a ruin.
