This article examines the works of Antonio Bonet that were created in La Solana. El Parador and the Berlingieri house, La Rinconada, Booth, and the Four Houses were important architectural contributions to in Uruguay and the region during their respective era. There importance was confimed when the first two buildings mentioned were included in Henry Russell Hitchcock ́s Latin American Architecture since 1945 (1955). Hitchcock ́s volume shows that Bonet ́s contributions reached places as far away as the south of Brazil, both in the form of Dieste ́s brick vaults, the concept from which originated with the Berlingieri house, and implicitly in Fresnedo Siri’s work.
