In 1959, a design contest was announced the project by the Bank of London and South America. The land was located on a street corner in the Buenos Aires CBD, an area housing nearly half the nation's financial activity. The winning design was submitted by the Clorindo Testa team, associated with SEPRA, a society composed of architects Sánchez Elía, Peralta Ramos and Agostini.
The project's architectural approach was among the most far-reaching and well-known local contributions to international architecture of the 1960s, as well as the country's most easily identifiable example of Brutalist architecture.
