He was born in 1913 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of eighteen, he joined the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA). Still, he abandoned his studies three years later to enroll in the aviation world.
In 1938 he began a career in Architecture, also at the UBA, finishing it in 1941.
In 1947 he traveled to Europe to meet Le Corbusier, with whom he afterward communicated extensively. In fact, in 1949, Le Corbusier recommended him to lead his only work in South America: the Curutchet house.
He is known for a research-based approach, but few of his projects were built. Some of his projects are the initial design for the Buenos Aires airport (1945), the project for the Suspended Office Building (1946) and the Cross on the Río de la Plata (1978-1980). The Bridge House or House over the brook is his most famous built design, for which he is best known as an exponent of modern architecture. It was made for his father between 1943 and 1945 under his direction.
Also, he developed an intense teaching activity in his workshop. He passed away in 1989.
