Whale-shaped concert hall in Buenos Aires with architectural mesh

Correo Central

5,500 m² of architectural mesh, constructed from over 1,200 individual elements, encapsulate the inner concert hall.

The architects from B4FS in Argentina designed fascinating cladding for the inner concert hall at the Centro Cultural Kirchner. Due to the shape and color of the building, the locals often refer to it as "ballena azul" or "blue whale".

For the shell of the "whale", the architects selected a custom version of the Escale architectural mesh with 70 mm high stainless steel spirals and aluminum round rods. All individual mesh elements were attached to the building's formative substructure without visible joins using fastening hooks at the top and bottom.
