Rioplatense describes the culture of a region on both sides of the Rio de le Plata that produces crops and cattle but also tango music, avant garde literature and arts as well as modern architecture and design. The minimalist landscape of plains and waters of the region inspired the building of modern artifacts that borrowed ideas, images, and materials from different parts of the world to shape eclectic cityscapes.
