Buenos Aires is known as the "Paris of South America". At the turn of the last century it was the world's 7th largest economy. The leaders then wanted to emulate European architecture, architects from abroad were enlisted to achieve this goal. In the 20 years since I have been to Argentina, there has been an interesting growth of contemporary architecture in addition mostly in the Puerto Madero section. Such a diverse and eclectic city!
