DESCRIPTION – Buenos Aires: Puerto Madero
Buenos Aires is certainly the most European city in Latin America, it is a metropolis which, throughout its history, has absorbed all the powerful influences and, above its original and orderly urban layout, an exceptional architectural heritage of all times is erected.
This guided tour offers a walk in Puerto Madero, the old port at the end of River Plate that rises from the nineties and today it is one of the most powerful Creative Districts of Argentina. This powerful contemporary cultural center is located in a unique landscape that combines elements of port assets (reservoirs, docks, silos, cranes), the view above the Costanera Sur, the Ecological Reserve and the river. In this unique setting, great architects have built or rehabilitated unique buildings that held large banks, multinationals, international hotels and cultural facilities.
The Hilton Tower by Mario Roberto Alvarez and the Hotel Faena by Philip Starck; residential El Faro Towers, Riverview Towers and Repsol YPF Towers; The Republic Building and Bank Boston Tower by Cesar Pelli; IBM Tower, the Pirelli Offices; Women Bridge by Santiago Calatrava and The Aleph Residence by Norman Forster are some of the works that we will visit and that have made possible the rebirth of this special neighborhood.
In this guided tour by one of our architects you will know firsthand the District of Puerto Madero and its buildings, and you will be amazed by the vitality and brightness of one of the most interesting neighborhoods in Buenos Aires.
