The source of inspiration for the Argentinian "Palacio del Congreso Nacional Argentino" is obvious: the distinctive dome is immediately reminiscent of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The Avenida de Mayo connects the building directly with the seat of the executive, the unmistakable "Casa Rosada" (pink house).
