Barrio Coornelio Saavedra

El Barrio Saavedra es uno de los barrios limitantes con el área metropolitana de Buenos Aires junto a la avenida Gral. Paz. Fundado por Perón, en un principio fue poblado por la clase obrera y con el paso del tiempo se convirtió, al igual que Palermo, en un barrio de clase media-alta. Es fácilmente reconocible desde Google Earth/Maps por ser un barrio de casas cuyos techos son casi exclusivamente de tejas rojas, a diferencia de la mayor parte de edificios y residencias de Buenos Aires (y en general, de Argentina). El barrio Saavedra muestra un tipo de arquitectura muy común en las etapas del peronismo: el chalet blanco, de fachada lisa y con tejas coloradas.

The Barrio Saavedra is one of the northern neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. In its north is the General Paz Avenue, and the metropolitan area (Gran Buenos Aires) starts just in front of it. This entire place was founded by the ex-president Juan Perón, originally made for the working-classes and quickly turned into a middle-class and upper-middle class neighborhood. If you take a look on Google Earth, you may find it quickly due to the red tiles on the rooftops. From this point of view, it somehow escapes to the usual color palette of the buildings in Buenos Aires (mostly between yellow, white, and black) and on the material used for the details of the facades and interiors. This neighborhood shows the unique style that emerged in the decades of the strongest influence of Juan Perón: the so-called “chalet peronista”, consisting in white simple facades and red-tiles rooftops.
