Not surprisingly, European architecture adorns Argentina’s cities and particularly Buenos Aires, which is commonly known as South America’s Paris. At the same time, in finding these cities surrounded by the expansive pampas, one is reminded that this is South America.This issue will introduce some of the works built in Argentina over the past 20 years. The three essays discuss issues of modernism in Argentina, prevailing tendencies amongst young architects, and the influence of the built environment on architectural discourse, paying special attention to the city of Buenos Aires.
