Jointly designed by Argentine practices GGMPU and Luca Morini, the new Bicentennial Civic Center is an administrative complex in Cordoba, Argentina alongside the Suquia River. Composed of two buildings with connection to the historic city center by two bridges, the concrete, prism-shaped larger structure houses ministries, while the smaller, more horizontal building is used for administrative offices with a roof garden to alleviate the temperature of the building in the warmer seasons. The mirror-clad governor’s house can also be found atop the lower building as an independent yet complementary structure.
