YPF S.A. (formerly Repsol) is the leading Energy Company in Argentina. Architect Cesar Pelli, known for designing some of the world ́s tallest buildings, initiated this incredible design described as two conjunct triangular towers with curved sides. This successful green roof project is ZinCo ́s first in South America. The platform of the building, which is located on an underground parking, was planted and paved using a system build-up with Floradrain® FD 40-E drainage element. A glazed corner balcony stretches from 27th to 33rd floor. Behind its facade, there is an arrangement of very large planter boxes using ZinCo green roof systems.
