  • The building has a peculiar architecture on the outside and it draws attention. Inside is an auditorium and meeting rooms studies and consultations. The books are stored in basements and solicitalos is required for consultation. It takes around 10 to 15 me to go up on an elevator for the books. Outside this system didn't find anything too far in the visit.

  • a great place to see good architecture in buenos aires. this 6 story building was designed by a famed argentine brutalist architect and inaugurated in 1992. the building is not in the best condition but the attention to detail in the design is amazing. unusual views of the city from the 5th floor. if you are into photography, you can spend days here. there are free tours on saturday and sundays at 4pm.
  • Its a nice and huge library, it will be little difficult for those who know very little spanish, there are lot of english books available too. You get to read book with a great view over looking most of the important places on BA. Its a really peaceful place to work as well.
  • Its quiet. The atmosphere is as great as the view. It looks down to Puerto Madero and the Rio de la Plata river
  • This place is fantastic to go and work with your laptop in the 6th floor, the wifi is not the best but is free all the place and obviously quite.
  • I liked the temporary exhibition in Shakespeare and Cervantes. A little bit more maintenance to the building would do good...
