description The 20th century architectural heritage in Buenos Aires has already been briefly introduced through three preliminary reports, the Documentos de Trabajo #121: “Modern Movement heritage in Buenos Aires: 1929-2004”, #138: “Contemporary architectural heritage in Buenos Aires” and #161: “Buenos Aires architectural heritage: the first decades of the 20th century”. The present preliminary work is aimed at students and those interested in the current condition and in the rehabilitation work carried out on the built heritage of the first decades of the 20th century in Buenos Aires, and together with the Documentos de Trabajo #229 and #258 it completes the panorama of the interventions on the architectural heritage of the past century. The essays and itinerary included are by no means an attempt to cover all the work done but to introduce and evaluate those examples which, according to the authors’ perception are the clearest referents of the state of the art in the field. Our hope is that this introduction may encourage the readers to find their own cases of interest and thus make a closer approach to understanding and caring after our common built legacy. In what concerns the architectural heritage of the first decades of the 20th century in Buenos Aires, it is huge, heterogeneous, remarkable and ever present in our city’s image1. A considerable number of those buildings have gone through preservation work, from customary maintenance to adaptive rehabilitations and even complex alterations. There is a lesson in each of the few examples introduced here, and perhaps, in thinking about them –and what happened to them- we could improve results in the future. We should certainly bear in mind the need to incorporate and enhance the city’s permanencies when introducing innovative changes in the existent buildings as a response to new demands, so that Buenos Aires may remain being itself, unique, as it has successfully been over the last century. The two essays that follow introduce interesting perspectives on the issue: the first, by Fernando Couturier, gives a critical appraisal of the different expressions and qualities of the architectural trends of the time, while the second, by Carolina Quiroga, offers an interesting approach to the architectural intervention criteria developed. The itinerary is based on a selection of the several examples detected and surveyed by our junior researchers. Thus, this work represents the conclusion of the first phase of a pioneering experience. Along the past five years –from 2007 on-, and parallel to the teaching and survey training work already started in 2004 with the History of Architecture course assistants with the aim of improving their teaching skills, we have been performing an experimental project to include research among the students’ interests. Therefore, the documentation survey and the register of the examples included in our current and former preliminary reports are part of the training in research activities conceived for a group of young assistants and former students, who have voluntarily joined efforts and enthusiastically devoted part of their scarce free time to contribute to this project. They have been performing their task with dedication and responsibility, and it is my belief that the experience may help them become better professionals and, those decided to join the faculty, better teachers. No doubt, the experience has enriched us all. To each and all of them the recognition and credits must be addressed.

El patrimonio arquitectónico de Buenos Aires ya ha sido brevemente presentado a través de tres informes preliminares, los Documentos de Trabajo N° 121: “El patrimonio del Movimiento Moderno en Buenos Aires: 1929-2004”, N° 138: “El patrimonio arquitectónico contemporáneo de Buenos Aires” y N° 161: “Patrimonio arquitectónico de la ciudad de Buenos Aires: primeras décadas del siglo 20”. El presente informe preliminar está dirigido a estudiantes y a todos aquellos interesados en el estado actual y en las operaciones de rehabilitación llevadas a cabo en el patrimonio construido de las primeras décadas del siglo 20 en Buenos Aires, y junto con los Documentos de Trabajo N° 229 y N° 258 completa el panorama de las intervenciones sobre el patrimonio arquitectónico del pasado siglo. Los ensayos y el itinerario incluidos no pretenden de ningún modo abarcar todo el trabajo realizado sino presentar y evaluar aquellos ejemplos que, a juicio de los autores, son los más claros referentes de las acciones llevadas a cabo en referencia al tema. Esperamos que esta breve introducción aliente a los lectores a descubrir sus propios casos de interés, de modo de lograr un mayor conocimiento y por lo tanto un mejor acercamiento a la comprensión y cuidado de nuestro legado construido compartido. En referencia al patrimonio arquitectónico de las primeras décadas del siglo 20 en Buenos Aires, podemos afirmar que es vasto, heterogéneo, destacable y omnipresente en nuestra imagen de la ciudad2. En un número considerable de esos edificios se han realizado tareas de conservación, que van desde el simple mantenimiento a rehabilitaciones con cambio de uso e incluso complejas alteraciones. En cada uno de los ejemplos presentados hay una lección a aprender, y quizás, el reflexionar sobre ellos –y lo que les sucedió- nos permita mejorar los resultados en el futuro. Cuando introducimos cambios innovadores en los edificios existentes para responder a nuevas necesidades, deberíamos ciertamente tener en cuenta la necesidad de incorporar y poner en valor las permanencias culturales urbanas, para que Buenos Aires permanezca siendo auténtica, única, como lo ha sido durante el pasado siglo. Los dos ensayos que siguen presentan puntos de vista interesantes sobre el tema. En el primero, Fernando Couturier ofrece una valoración crítica de las diferentes cualidades y tendencias de las expresiones arquitectónicas del período. En el segundo, Carolina Quiroga plantea una interesante aproximación a los criterios aplicados a la intervención arquitectónica. El itinerario que completa el trabajo está basado en una selección de los numerosos ejemplos detectados y estudiados por nuestros investigadores de apoyo. Este trabajo representa además la conclusión de la primera fase de una experiencia pionera. A lo largo de los últimos cinco años –desde 2007- y en paralelo con el entrenamiento en docencia e investigación iniciada en 2004 para los ayudantes del curso de Historia de la Arquitectura con el objetivo de mejorar sus habilidades docentes, hemos estado llevando a cabo un proyecto experimental para incluir la investigación dentro de las áreas de interés de los alumnos.
