Casa Pueblo

Casapueblo situated in Punta Ballena (Whale Point) near Punta del Este, Uruguay, is the house of Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró It is an homage to his son Carlitos Miguel, one of the sixteen survivors of the crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571.

Casapueblo is now a citadel-sculpture that includes a museum, an art gallery, and the Hotel Casapueblo.
Built around a tin box called La Pionera (The Pioneer), Páez Vilaró designed it with a style that can be equated to the Mediterranean coast houses from Santorini; however, the architect usually referred to hornero, a typical bird of Uruguay, when discussing the construction style.
You can see beautiful views of the ocean and Punta del Este sky scrappers.
