Everything in Buenos Aires has a mix of styles, and that of course includes the architecture. The more upscale neighborhoods, like Recoleta for example, are full of buildings evidently European in style, with intricate facades, marble floors and balconies with French doors. Puerto Madero, the neighborhood evolved from port development, is now one of the most upscale in the city and is home to most of the city's modern architecture. Sprawling outward from center city are also dozens (if not hundreds) of sky scrapers which lack any particular style, and could be out of any big city in the world. Residential homes have the greatest variety of style and mimic everything from Asian to American Southwestern as a model.
