Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 34
Luis Barolo, an immigrant, became a cotton grower and the first importer of cotton and wool-spinning equipment in Argentina. He commissioned Mario Palanti (1885-1979) to build the tallest office building in South America. Completed in 1923, it kept the record for about a decade. It's apparently a coded version of Dante's poem, with the upper floors representing heaven. The beacon is supposedly visible from Montevideo, where Palanti designed a twin tower.
