Is something bold like this thinkable in Argentina?

The comeback of ORNAMENT thanks to new technology like 3D printing and robotics:

'Eagle Tower' NYC 41 West 57th Street,
A steampunk Neo-Art-Deco architecture revolution of the 21st century?

Thinkable? Sure. Somewhat expected? Not really. Truth is, iconic Argentine urban architecture is quickly becoming an oxymoron.

An oxymoron in which ways?

The shown 'Eagle Tower' has the character of a showcase design, like the bloated showcars you'd see on an exhibition. Like the Haute Couture of architecture.
It shows what's possible thanks to new technology and design methods (like 3D printing). You know it likely won't look like that if it ever enters a market, but it inspires, impresses and has potential to let more interesting designs enter the mainstream.

I'd be happy to see some of Eagle Tower's elements on a new luxury tower in the area or elsewhere, as we've read there's a lot to come. I think this has some inspiring power that clearly will affect future projects. The beginning of new ornamentation is already there and it's about time, architecture literally means "the art of building /construction".

McOrnaments.





Sorry, erbse kid, but it is awful beyond description.

A contradiction of terms... Iconic building design only happens in Argentina out of lone efforts. Argentine architecture (if there's such a thing) has turned away from decent skyscrapers and embellished buildings into a mixture of bleh and meh construction patterns that is thoroughly incapable of producing any sort of admiration. Sure, there are exceptions, but the majority of what you can see in Argentina is an ode to disappointment. Does that mean that we wouldn't be able to see those elements in future projects? No, but let me doubt that as happening anytime soon...

No sé si lo compartieron pero ayer pasé por la calle Costa Rica en Palermo y encontré este edificio. A mi juicio no está mal, pero solamente una construcción así viene bárbaro cuando hay enrase en sus dos costados, se vería mucho mejor en la 9 de Julio si tuviese más altura.

Si tengo que elegir entre esos elementos decorativos y las vomitivas construcciones que tenemos por regla general, prefiero esa onda kitsch. Por lo menos es más inspiradora que la decadencia grisácea/cremita con vidrios polarizados que tenemos invadiendo nuestro espacio urbano...

Claro, es una reaccion. No se la puede racionalizar, solo se tiene y punto.

Creo que no hay nada peor que querer pertenecer. Por ahi debe venir mi reaccion. Un edificio de 7 pisos entre medianeras no pretende nada mas que hacer guita. La veo mas, no se, inofensiva.

Son meras reacciones eh.

Una pregunta, ¿Existe o existió un proyecto contemporáneo de reconstruir el ala sur de la Casa Rosada ó ya es imposible por una cuestión de espacio?



Si se hace un frente recto sobre Yrigoyen, es decir sin el escalonado del sector norte, alcanzaría el espacio pero la calle quedaría bastante mas angosta y no se si sería un problema teniendo el transito que tiene.

Yo creo que la calles que rodean a la plaza de mayo van a terminar siendo peatonales en algun momento, asique no habría problema en mi humilde opinion. Crel que solo habria que mover un poco la boca de subte que hay al lado de la rosada.
