- The imposing building that houses the Banco Hipotecario on the corners of Reconquista and Bartolome Mitre in Microcentro calls to mind a space station from Star Wars or another vintage science fiction film. Begun in 1959, the project was completed in 1966 to house the Banco de Londres y America del Sud and was designed by Clorinda Testa, an Argentinian architect. The building is considered one of the foremost examples of Brutalist architecture – identified by its use of exposed concrete and sharp, repetitive geometric angles – in South America.
