The extension of Line E of the Metro of Buenos Aires between Bolívar and Retiro was inaugurated in June 2019. This extension includes 2 kilometers of tunnels and three new stations: Retiro, Catalinas and Correo Central (Line E’s first interchange with Line B). For this project, AC&A tasks included planning, the “Economic evaluation”, and architecture as well as the preparation of the detailed design of the Catalinas and Correo Central stations.
To learn more about the project and about the history of Line E, we invite you to download the book that our directors Juan Pablo Martínez and Roberto Agosta wrote in collaboration with Sergio Ruiz Díaz. In this book, entitled “The history of a project in search of its justification. The case of the E Line of the Buenos Aires Subway”, the authors propose a chronicle of the project and the construction of Line E of the Subway of the City of Buenos Aires, from the request for the concession presented in 1929 that originated it, until its culmination in Plaza de los Virreyes in 1986 and its extension to Retiro.
