Kavanagh Building, San Martin Square, Buenos Aires, Argentina photo
Kavanagh Building ("Edifcio Kavanagh"), San Martin Square, Buenos Aires

Declared a national historic monument in 1999, the Kavanagh building was constructed between 1934 and 1936 in the Retiro area of Buenos Aires, directly facing San Martin Square.

Millionaire Corina Kavanagh commissioned architects Gregorio Sanchez, Ernesto Lagos, and Luis Maria de la Torre to design it, and she sold two of her farms to finance its construction.

At 120 meters height, with 32 floors and 105 apartments, the building was, at its opening, the tallest building in Latin America and the tallest reinforced concrete structure in the world.
