This beautiful building in Buenos Aires Argentina was designed as a water pumping station in 1877. It was designed by Swedish-Argentine architect Carols Nvstromer. It occupies an entire city block and it still functions as a pumping station today.
It is described as a French Renaissance palace, covered with over 300,000 glazed, multi-colored terra cotta tiles imported from the British ceramics maker Royal Doulton.
