MEDERO, Santiago. The building of the School of Dentistry: a manifesto to architectural rationality. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.35, pp.80-88.  Epub 01-Jun-2020. ISSN 0797-0374.

Projected in several stages, the building of the School of Dentistry was inaugurated in 1940, fulfilling one of the wishes of the community of dentists in Uruguay. The construction made transparent its functional and structural logic, used industrialized elements and opted for abstraction in its finishes. In addition, it practically lacked elements of classics, which denoted once again its claim to objectivity. This, with its inescapable aesthetic load, referred to the world of machines, the scientific revolution and precision, a world of which dentistry, as a discipline, was not alien. However, the different projects of the building show that its designer did not always support these ideas and played with more expressive projects, with allusions to other architectural traditions.

Palabras clave : Historia de la Odontología; Uruguay; Arquitectura.
