Terrazas del Portezuelo, San Luis

4.2
The sparkling glass pyramid of Terrazas del Portezuelo stands out against the mountain landscape in the province of San Luis. The building complex opened in 2010, acclaimed as the first sustainable public buildings in the country and accredited by Al Gore's Climate Reality Project. The buildings house the new House of Government, as well as four other ministerial divisions in buildings that surround a public, civil square. The sleek, modern design of the buildings sharply contrast against the surrounding green open plains, low brush, and mountain range.

  • The company, specializing in the exploration, production, refining and commercialization of petroleum, had its origin in 1907, when oil was discovered near the city of Comodoro Rivadavia in Chubut. Following World War I, oil had become an important resource, leading to struggles between rival powers to gain control of it. YPF was created by President Hipólito Yrigoyen and General Enrique Mosconion 3 June 1922. It was the first entirely state-run oil company in the world, the second being the French Compagnie française des pétroles (CFP, French Company of Petroleum), created in 1924 by the conservative Prime Minister Raymond Poincaré.[8] YPF's creation was followed by the creation of ANCAPin Uruguay (1931), YPFB in Bolivia(1936), Pemex in Mexico (1938), ENAPin Chile (1950), and Petrobras in Brazil(1953). Mosconi served as YPF's first director.
