I'm gonna post some buildings designed by the late Argentine architect Alejandro Bustillo

Llao Llao Hotel and the church of Our Lady of Nahuel Huapi in Bariloche.

Bustillo was the grandson of the Businessman Eduardo Madero, who was the project manager of Puerto Madero (Madero Port) the main port in Buenos Aires. The old Puerto Madero is now a tourist zone with many restaurants, the Buenos Aires Hilton is located there and if you stay on that zone you can walk a few blocks until Plaza de Mayo and visit the Casa Rosada, no need for a taxi.

You can really see just how rich Argentina was compared to the rest of the world for much of its history here. Very pretty, 🥰

Bonus :#gem: from Buenos Aires, the Palacio Paz which belonged to 19th and early 20th century media Mogul José Paz. The building currently belongs to the "Círculo Militar", a club for Argentine military officers.

Using big buildings to wave your civic peepee around was big in America in the late 1800s, a period when Portland was booming. We had all this old growth timber to chop down and it was really valuable at the time in America, Asia, wherever. So a couple buildings that were made way too good just to show off that Portland was rich:

Kinda reminds me of one by me. The old Columbus courthouse in 1885. It was probably cool then but they didn't have any air conditioning, fire escapes or anything really. It was basically falling apart before they tore it down in the seventies and built two more in its place. All the utilities are screwed up in these old building and shit just gets old and needs to be modernized. You'd look like a strag building some victorian shit down here nowadays anyway.

Das zweite Haus sieht aber tbh aus wie ne Fabrikhalle. Nur die Eingangstür ist bisl klein.

Reported by:
  • Frank_Williams : It's because they were all made of plaster lol. SF kept part of one and had to basically rebuild it.

That hurt to read. Seeing beautiful structures get demolished after an event sucks. Another example is the Tennessee Centennial Exposition (below), but the city at least kept the Parthenon replica and reconstructed it to be permanent.

Much of the White City was a cheap plaster mix built over wood framing. The buildings were closer to paper mache than anything designed to last. The ones built out of stone did survive, and they became the Art Institute, the MSI, and a few others.
