Mar del Plata is the country’s main seaside resort city, located 400 km south of Buenos Aires.
Although it has a stable population of 650,000 inhabitants, during the summer it triples its density due to the hordes of tourists that throng every corner.
This makes it impossible to have a unique perception of its reality depending on when you visit it, since the complexity of having two cities superimposed in time (one in summer and the other in winter, with their corresponding spring and autumn fades) generates contrasts that are very difficult to perceive with the naked eye.
Casa Intermitente takes advantage of this condition to sustain itself over time: during the summer it functions as tourist accommodation, and out of season it holds exhibitions, residencies, talks, training sessions, etc. totally free of charge, funded by summer tourism.
Located in the traditional neighbourhood of Punta Mogotes and a few metres from the sea, it consists of a series of fully equipped flats, a workshop for shared use and two exhibition rooms.
