The renovation project aimed to maintain the image of the port, adding contemporary architectural elements.
Casa FOA was born in 1985 as an initiave of Mercedes Malbrán de Campos and a group of ladies wit the purpose of raising funds for the Argentine Oftalmologic Foundation "Jorge Malbrán" (FOA). With a growing success, Casa FOA has become one the most important events in the country´s cultural agenda.
