A walk through a key area of contemporary Buenos Aires. From the 1990s onwards, the urban development that took place within the framework of the old port allows us to think about the metropolitan demands of a city that was entering the 21st century. The existing structures and materialities (docks, warehouses, cranes, locks, bridges and silos), take us back to the Buenos Aires of the late 19th century and the debate that the construction of the new port provoked; a debate that was repeated a century later when the recovery of the area as a privileged urban space began.

Successive interventions led to the appearance of parks, corporate and residential towers, museums, universities, cultural and consumer spaces, among others. Today, some of the population with very high incomes live, study and work in Puerto Madero. Strikingly, its public spaces are mainly used by mass tourism and the popular sectors. Increasingly integrated into the metropolis but still without any public transport in its streets, the debate about this small global city is still open.
