  • Jacques Bedel is an Argentinian architect and artist. His works of art have been highly regarded since the 1970s, winning many international prizes. This book presents a selection of twenty-five houses by Jacques Bedel the architect. These intriguing works represent a new direction in Argentinian domestic architecture. Bedel's houses are a radical departure from current architectural fashion. Rooted in popular Argentine building styles and classical design tradition, his original and consistent designs are explained in a critical essay by the Architect Alfonso Corona-Martinez. The book includes an epilogue featuring Bedel´s own house and two country houses where he also stays and works, and a complete methodical catalogue of his life´s work.
