Artstor Digital Library has collaborated with ART on FILE to share approximately 1,500 digital photographs of architecture, built environment projects, and landscape architecture in Buenos Aires.
In their most recent Artstor-sponsored campaign, photographers Colleen Chartier and Rob Wilkinson focused on the contemporary and historic buildings and landscape architecture of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Two areas of focus will be the Puerto Madero Waterfront district located along the Rio de la Plata and the Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, a former resort area that is now home to hundreds of species of birds and other wildlife. In addition to historic buildings, Puerto Madero features Santiago Calatrava’s Puente de la Mujer, Philippe Starck’s Faena Hotel + Universe, Rafael Viñoly’s Fortabat Art Collection, and Cesar Pelli’s Repsol-YPF corporate tower. ART on FILE will also document the Recoleta Cemetery, University of Buenos Aires Law School, and Galerías Pacífico, as well as the city’s architecturally rich neighborhoods of San Telmo, La Boca, Palermo, Retiro, and Belgrano.
These new photographs bring the total to more than 19,000 images by ART on FILE already in the Digital Library. Chartier and Wilkinson have contributed selections from ART on FILE’s extensive archive of slides and transparencies, which documents contemporary architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and public art around the world. Artstor has also sponsored previous campaigns for ART on FILE to create new digital photographs of contemporary architecture in the United States, Europe, United Arab Emirates, and Shanghai.
