THE ARCHITECT'S EYE./
ARGENTINIAN ARCHITECT GONZALO N. MUNOZ'S LOVE OF TRAVEL HAS BEEN WITH HIM SINCE AN EARLY AGE./ COMING FROM THE COASTAL CITY OF MAR DEL PLATA + HAVING GROWN UP IN NECOCHEA, HE ADMITS THAT "SO MANY COMINGS + GOINGS AS A CHILD ARE REFLECTED IN HOW MUCH I LIKE TO TRAVEL."/
MORE RECENTLY, A STUDY EXCHANGE WITH A GERMAN UNIVERSITY ALLOWED HIM TO SPEND TIME ABROAD, + OPENED HIS MIND TO GETTING TO KNOW AS MANY COUNTRIES + CULTURES AS POSSIBLE./
WHEREVER HE TRAVELS, HE LIKES TO UNDERSTAND (+ CAPUTURE!) THE CULTURE OF THE PLACES HE VISITS./ NOT JUST THE SIGHTS + SOUNDS, BUT ALSO THE FOOD: "I THINK IT'S THE BEST WAY TO SHARE MOMENTS WITH THE LOCALS."/
F1FTY FELL IN LOVE WITH GONZALO'S AWESOME SHOTS OF BUENOS AIRES, WHERE HE NOW LIVES, SO WE ASKED HIM TO SHARE HIS OWN TAKE ON THE CITY...
"The oldest residential neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, San Telmo breathes a special historic atmosphere. It's a great place to walk on a Sunday afternoon - Enjoy the fair, do some sightseeing, eat + go have a coffee in one of the impressive remarkable cafés. San Telmo is one of the best places in Buenos Aires to really get an idea of the Argentine culture - don't forget to enter the 'Conventillos' that are now transformed into restaurants."
"With stunning glass skyscrapers, elegant restaurants + trendy nightclubs, Puerto Madero is enjoyed by the rich + famous people. - It is a young neighbourhood that emerged from the largest urbanisation project in the history of Buenos Aires. In 1993, the city government remodelled the old docks that had been part of the port, giving way to opportunities for a new development in the city, in a safe + ideal area for leisure + luxury living."
"A colourful + charming neighbourhood right next to the old port of Buenos Aires. With its multicoloured houses + taverns, the neighbourhood clings to its tradition of tango, passion for football + Italian roots. - Today, it is one of the most important cultural centres + tourist attractions of Buenos Aires. Do not forget the important museums such as that of the artist Quinquela Martin + the Fundación PROA, a new contemporary spot that brings works from the current artistic scene."
