The Usina del Arte (Power Station of Art), inaugurated in various phases between 2011 and 2013, with its two auditoriums of extraordinary acoustics, exhibition spaces, and public programs, has become one of the main hubs and magnets of the Distrito de las Artes (Art District).
The building was constructed by the electricity company Italo-Argentina between 1914 and 1916, based on a project of the Italian architect Juan Chiogna. It occupies an area of 7,500 m2. Its form and structure, as well as materiality, remind of a Florentine Palace, with a magnificent clock tower and stairway, which were added in 1926. The restoration of the industrial building and its conversion into a cultural complex duplicated its space to 15.000 m2.
