Space where artistic expressions are available to everyone. Architectural icon of the City of Buenos Aires.
At the dawn of the 20th century, a “palace of light” created by the Italian architect Giovanni Chiogna according to the industrial aesthetics of the time, housed the Italo Argentina Electricity building. It was a design reminiscent of a Florentine palace that marked a milestone in the urban landscape: in the past, for its scale and monumentality, and in the present, for its quality, uniqueness and color.
The recovery, which went through several efforts, took on the challenge of transforming a building with the industrial imprint of the early 20th century into an intelligent artistic complex.
