Notes on the Geography of Argentina: From Boca to the Torre: Photo 25
The Paseo Colón is an arterial that runs south from the Casa Rosada and passes a few blocks east of Plaza Dorrego. The street once bordered the Rio de la Plata, but landfilling has left it a mile west of the water. Buildings have moved in to occupy the new ground. The one on the right, completed in 1919, houses the Department of Agriculture (now Agro-industry); the one on the left since 1956 has housed the University of Buenos Aires School of Engineering. Its history is more interesting: it opened in 1948 as the home of the Eva Perón Foundation. She died four years later, and the Foundation went into a brief and terminal decline, closing in 1955.
