Unlike the United States, Argentina’s capital city does not have a centrally located judicial complex. Wanting to rectify this, the national government proposed siting the new complex on an unfinished section of Diagonal Sur, one of the radial boulevards from La Casa Rosada. This in turn would act as a governmental node, connecting La Casa Rosada and the Capital building. Initially when approaching this project, a lot of research was put into understanding Argentina’s government, culture, geography, and judicial system. Since Argentina utilizes Civil Law as their judicial system, we needed to become intensely familiar with how this differed from Common Law, practiced in the United States.
