Eladio Dieste was a Uruguayan engineer and architect who made his reputation building a range of structures from grain silos, factory sheds, markets and churches, all in Uruguay and all of exceptional elegance. His most well-known work is the 1960 Church of Christ the Worker (Church of Christ the Worker and Our Lady of Lourdes) in Estación Atlántida, Uruguay
#ThrowbackThursday: The Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, where the old Beech Grove hospital's north building stands today, was erected in 1926 to enhance the beauty of the grounds. It was removed in 1955 due to the hospital’s expansion. #stfrancis100
The display is strung out along a forested trail that winds down past several building clusters built into a steep hillside. Roman Catholic cathedrals and monasteries predominate — notably St. Peter's Basilica, the Monte Cassino Abbey and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes — along with scenes from ancient Jerusalem, whence the grotto's sobriquet, "Jerusalem in Miniature". Half of the hillside features buildings and scenes from the Holy Land.
