A monthly contest from the editors of RECORD asks you to guess the architect for a work of historical importance.

Clue: This public school is among hundreds built according to a standardized design by a Modernist architect better known for expressionistic, monumental projects. Located in one of South America’s largest metropolitan areas, the schools were designed to function as community centers for impoverished neighborhoods.

By entering, you have a chance to win an iPad mini. Deadline to enter is the last day of each month at 5:00pm EST.
