Palace of the Post Office - Buenos Aires





On the early decades of the 20th century, the famous architect Norbert Maillart built three gigantic icons of Buenos Aires, with his characteristical exquisite Beaux Arts style: the Colegio Nacional Buenos Aires (translated: “National School of Buenos Aires), the Palacio de Tribunales (translated: “Palace of the Justice of the Nation”), and the Palace of the Post Office. This last building surpassed the limits of the Beaux Arts, with a height that it can only be seen in Buenos Aires (for this particular style). Since 2005, it is a Cultural Centre, with a strong potential of becoming one of the most important museums in the world in the near-future, among the Louvre, the Met, and others. This massive building, because of strategic geographical location in the middle of the Microcentro (Downtown), is quickly becoming an icon with a massive flow of people, mostly in the weekends, but also from monday to friday due to all the public activities and events in its new 3 main places that has inside: the Lamp, sustained by a Vierendeel beam (brought from Belgium), the Dome, where’s you can see gorgeous views of Buenos Aires (specially of Puerto Madero, Retiro and Microcentro), and the famous the Whale, who is covered by a metal mesh and where there is a symphonic room.
