PROGRAM LOCATION 

Buenos Aires (pop. 13 million) is well-known for its cultural diversity and dynamic atmosphere, making it one of South America's most elegant and vibrant cities.  The city's history revolves around the Western European immigrants whose descendants have preserved their influences since the 19th century by way of architecture, art, and style.  Buenos Aires has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.
