Néstor Kirchner Cultural Center (CCK)
Sarmiento 151, C1041 AAE, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Néstor Kirchner Cultural Center (CCK)Spanning an entire downtown block, the Néstor Kirchner Center (CCK) is one of the largest cultural venues in the world. The hulking, nine-story pile from 1928 was Buenos Aires’s Central Post Office until it lay abandoned for many years; a massive restoration project combined rescuing original details with innovative modern design, creating dozens of spaces for art, poetry readings, concerts, and performances. Especially recommended: music in the main symphony hall, nicknamed “The Blue Whale,” famed for curved, wood-paneled walls and outstanding acoustics. Visit the top-floor cupula for panoramic city views—or see an exhibit in this all-glass structure that seems to float, unsupported.
