Casa FOA is the most important yearly exhibition where decorators, architects, designers, and landscape architects, selected for their talent and prestige, showcase the local and international trends in architecture, interior design, and landscaping. It will take place this year at the former Alpargatas factory with the name "Casa FOA - Molina Ciudad Fábrica", from September 7th to October 14th, 2012, in the neighborhood of La Boca.
The exhibit will feature more than 40 architectural spaces that will make up the 7500 square meters of a renovated old building.
Casa FOA was born in 1985 as an initiative of Mercedes Malbrán de Campos and a group of ladies with the purpose of raising funds for the Argentine Ophthalmology Foundation "Jorge Malbrán" (FOA). With a growing success, Casa FOA has become one the most important events in the country´s cultural agenda.
The strategic selection of the venues and the careful and profound restoration of the chosen buildings give every edition of Casa FOA an indisputable value for the community, making it possible to associate its name not only to Argentine design but also to the preservation of buildings of great historic and cultural value, like: Casa de la Moneda (1995), Hotel de Inmigrantes (2000), Monasterio de Santa Catalina (2001), Casa del Patio de la Reconquista (2003), Hotel Avenida de Mayo (1991), Puerto Madero Dock 5 (1993), Palacio Alcorta (1994), Tattersal de Palermo (1998) Apostadero Naval (2000), Terrazas de Buenos Aires (2002), Tribuna II Palermo (2004), Puerto de Frutos de Tigre (2008), among others.
