Edificio Kavanagh, Buenos Aires

Edificio Kavanagh, Buenos Aires

This is a somewhat deceptive view of Edifcio Kavanagh in Buenos Aires and not just because it appears to be surrounded by trees. This view shows the top of the building so you don't get a sense of the bulk of the building. This is a very large building.

This view shows some of that bulk but in a a way overstates it.

As you can see here, the building is very narrow near the top while the lower floors are actually in the shape of a 'V' with a car park and service area in the back.
