The Neo-Classic style was born in France and Italy in mid-18th century and emerged later in the Baroque and Rococo movements. This movement uses the shapes from the Greek-Latin Ancient Times adding the elements of the place and time in which the projects were carried out.
Neo-Classicism is characterized by simplicity and sobriety in the architectonic shapes, such the columns that lie over pedestals to give them height and elegance. The frontons offer harmonic proportions; the curve lines give way to the rectilinear lines, the symmetry and severity of the geometry have been respected and generalized.
Neo-Classicism started to develop in Buenos Aires among architects at the beginning of the 19th century. It is worth noting that this style arrived in the Argentine capital city very quickly, soon after it disappeared in the European capital cities.
