Faena Art Center Originally built on one of Argentina’s first flour mills. The main exhibition space, located in what was once the mill’s machine room, has been painstakingly rebuilt while retaining original details from the early 1900s. Soaring ceilings, semicircular arches, bay windows and other hallmarks of the turn-of-the-century industrial architecture serve to create a spacious, light-filled centre.
