MATADERO MODELO 


This web archive gathers 3D scans and partial reconstructions of slaughterhouses built by the architect Francisco Salamone in the 1930s in the Argentinean pampas. These unique and strange structures, built in an eclectic mix of modernist and art deco styles, display a rare architectural exuberance usually reserved for civic buildings. While Francisco Salamone’s work has enjoyed a recent valorization, these particular structures have remained largely overlooked. This project is an examination of these buildings as spaces that hold valuable answers to how the cattle industry helped shape a nation known worldwide for its meat production and steak culture.
