The gnarly design for what will become the tallest building in Argentina is totally sick, brah. And we mean that in the best way.
Via Facebook, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez announced this week the winning design for Buenos Aires’ Audiovisual Pole: a supertall skyscraper in the shape of a skateboard quarter pipe.
The plan comes from MRA+A, and, at 1,165 feet tall, will not only be the tallest building in Argentina, but the tallest structure in all of Latin America — surpassing the current tallest building, the 984-foot Costanera tower in Santiago, Chile.
The 67-story Audiovisual Pole development will serve as a hub for the local film and television industry and be comprised of production studios, office space, film museums, a hotel and condos.
A public-private initiative, the project will cost a reported $300 million USD and take five years to complete.
