Buenos Aires City opens a new spot for symphonic music lovers in the Art Factory Building in La Boca neighborhood (Pedro de Mendoza Avenue and Benito Perez Galdos Street). The new complex of 15 thousand square meters also has rooms for ballet, visual arts, demonstrations and exhibitions. Since last Wednesday the symphonic room was opened in the old boiler of this building which belonged to an electric company.
The opening had a concert in honor of Astor Piazzolla, the father of contemporary tango. The 1200 seats allow enjoying the marvelous acoustics of the place. There are three levels of stage boxes and ground floor seats. There is also a chamber music hall with 400 seats in two levels which create more intimacy with the artists. Finally, there’s a room for rehearsals and a central foyer.
This wonderful building in La Boca was built between 1914 and 1916 by the Italian Argentine Electric Company (Architect Juan Chiogna). In 2007 the Buenos Aires City Governor Jorge Telerman decided to build a new space for art there. Now, that dreams is a reality and you can enjoy the music and other activities in a wonderful place with great architecture.
