Finished in 1966, the Banco de Londres embodies the Brutalist Style which reached prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. The extensive use of concrete is balanced in appearance by the fašade's geometric openings. It is in this fašade that Clorinda Testa explores the possibilites of concrete, blurring the lines between sculpture and architecture and filtering the light that penetrates within. It is well suited for a bank that seeks to project an image of strength and openness. A large interior volume creates a dramatic space that interacts with a play of levels above. The interior space also embodies a sense of efficiency with the mechanical systems painted in vibrant colors, a style also seen in Le Corbusier's buildings in Chandigarh, India. Located in the heart of Buenos Aires' financial district, the building is located only a few blocks from the Casa Rosada; the bank has generated great public interest and debate since it was first erected.
