It's just so great for cities to get some new buildings from one of the world's greatest Architects like Pilli

Foward the way Buenos Aires!!

Pelli was born in Argentina, but i believe his office is based in the US.

if pelli is such a great architect...why did he design this rather bland building? I don't like pelli. and this is a typical pelli design. atleast it's reasonably tall.

Nice tower. Good to see Argentina is lifting its head again. It has such great potential.

Nice glass scraper but not new to me. I made a diagram drawing of it more than half a year ago.
