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.
Edificio Kavanagh is rightly the most well-known Art Deco building in Buenos Aires. It was designed by architects, Sanchez, Lagos and de la Torre and was built 1934-36.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
