Amphibious Laboratory of the Río de la Plata

Opening: september 10th 

Visits: Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm with previous reservation through the Museum View MUNTREF App or via e-mail at

Laboratorio Anfibio del Plata (LAP) is an amphibious spatial installation that addresses, exhibits, and challenges the relationship between the city and its bodies of water. Piped streams and a hidden waterfront highlight the prevalence of cement over the water of the marshes. Through the production of artifacts and events, LAP proposes the construction of an Amphibious Archive that mobilizes and activates reflections on how to live in and transform our anthropised amphibious territory.  The circular space of the scaffolding structure allows visitors to walk through a hydric circuit that reveals the flow of invisibilised water. Thus, the visitor is permanently in contact with water, its imaginaries, the filtering processes, as well as with objects that belong to the amphibious imagination intervened by this group of artists. The hydric circuit receives the water extracted from the bodies of water near the sites where the LAP is located: the Medrano stream in Tecnópolis and the Río de la Plata in MUNTREF.
