BUENOS AIRES | Digital TV Tower | 360m | 52 fl | Pro

The winner of the "Competition for Single Tower Communications", architect Hector Raul Muniz told the media that "the work will be 360 meters in total." He also explained that considers "unique characteristics" that distinguish it from others around the world.

The winner of the "National Competition of Ideas and Unique Tower blueprint for the Metropolitan Area Communications," architect Hector Raul Muniz told this means building characteristics "South America's largest."

According to Muniz said, "the work will be (approximately) some 260 meters high, over 100 meters of antenna", which will reach 360 meters in total. In addition, said he sees "unique characteristics" that distinguish it from other communication towers located around the world.

In this sense, the Tower Communications Unified own "cultural facilities, a communications museum, an auditorium and commercial offices. All distributed on different floors." Host also "technical floors dedicated to different communication bands from the antenna to operate."

In addition to the functionality of the building itself, the idea is "a place that has no use, it is a dump. And building (from Tower), a technology center to revive the whole area." Another of the aspirations of the project is reducing the number of antennas that serve the same function, both in the city of Buenos Aires and, at least, "the first and second string of Buenos Aires province."

The start of construction is planned "for the second half of 2011," Muniz confirmed.




Here you can go see a little more than their house or unify the tower:

For what I've read, it's not going to be exactly within the city, it will be in a southern suburb, in Avellaneda. And yes, those renders look really ugly, but at least we are going to have a supertall in BA.

Reminds me a bit of an even uglier version of London's BT Tower.

^ Indeed. Quite an abomination of natural aesthetics. Makes you burp spontaneously.

Is the BT tower very hated? I kind of like it. Fit's London's ad hoc organized chaos architecture. Buenos Aires has so many ugly concrete blocks (in fact it mostly consists of it) that basically anything is good. Plus it's in the middle of nowhere anyway.
Don't get me wrong it's one of my fave cities with great architecture as well.
