The largest and most prestigious interior design event from Argentina, Casa FOA, is an unintended sustainable enterprise that combines charity and patrimony conservation: it was created in 1985 to raise funds for an Ophthalmological Foundation, and since then it functions bringing attention to unusual and decaying buildings in Buenos Aires, inviting architects and designers to revive them with the creation of conceptual spaces inside.

In its 29 years, it has become the spot to check out ideas from local creators, and it has incorporated green trends too, covering tiny apartments, eco-homes and shipping container spaces. An 1883 factory in the south area of the city is the scenario for this year's edition, from which we bring some interesting ideas.
