Between the buildings and the low houses of Rosario
The architects and researchers of the UNR Aníbal Moliné and Roberto De Gregorio conducted a study on identity of the center of Rosario that was built in the first half of the 20th century. For two years they analyzed the architecture and history of the buildings that formed the central area of the city .
“ In that restlessness to find a sense of identity of Rosario, we decided to divide the work in high-rise buildings and low houses, which presupposes a dual sense of identity. From the time when there is a certain technical capacity and intention to dump capital in the expression of that power, the leaders of Rosarina society turn to buildings in height, while the bass come to play like a kind of chorus,” explains Aníbal Moliné.
De Gregorio studiedbuildings in height, his work is a tour of thecity ‘s most striking architecture. The first stage he analyzed was from 1900 to 1920, a period characterized by establishing the central area that extended from Plaza 25 de Mayo west through Córdoba .

The oldest of these buildings, located in the southeast corner, was built by Federico Callivadinoin 1907, for the insurance company “La Agrícola” and reproduced the model of the Creole houses or chorizo houses, stacking an envelope another one. In front of this, in 1916 the building of the company “La Inmobiliaria” was built by Buschiazzo and son, and already had a more luxurious style like the buildings of Buenos Aires.
In the first decades of the 20th century, high-rise buildings sought greater ostentation and luxury but did not represent any originality or constitute any school. In general, according to points out the architect, until 1920 was moved images of other important buildings in the world and were replied in Rosario.
From the 1920s modernityerupted, but not in skyscrapers but in houses, and individualdwellings for middle-class familiesemerged. The buildings were modernized inside but not on the facades. Examples of this stage are the “Fuentes Palace” and the “Cabanellas Palace”.
