This 12-story building is a work by the architect Mario Roberto Álvarezm who was in charge of the direction and execution of this project.
In 1983 it was where the votes were counted during the presidential elections and on the following year it hosted the “Comisión Nacional sobre la Desaparición de Personas” (literally: National commission on missing persons). Years later it was the first seat of the legislative body of the city of Buenos Aires.
Nowadays it is one of the most important cultural centers in the city where culture is fostered.
It is regarded as an indirect education center due to the large number of courses, workshops, conferences, congresses and exhibitions that have their place here.
It currently seeks to gain the interest of different audiences with the constant renewal of the artistic proposals.
