Very nice building, seems so strange to see so many straight walls into a work of this architect.

Only 14 floors? Too short for the highrises section in this forum. Relocate it to General Urban Developments section, please.
I honestly think all development projects must be sustainable and futureproof.

You support the good projects... and oppose the bad.

Vitra, a multi-faceted, luminous glass tower with a sculptural shape in São Paulo, Brazil, is Daniel Libeskind’s first project in South America. The building will include 14 apartments, one per floor plus a two-floor penthouse- from 565 to 1,145 square meters. The main distinction is that each unit’s floor plan will be unique. Vitra will stand on Horácio Lafer Av., in the Itaim Bibi district, between Salvador Cardoso St. and Lopes Neto St. Near Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek Av. and Brigadeiro Faria Lima Av, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The site offers quick and easy access to several leisure sites such as the Ibirapuera and Do Povo parks.

According to Libeskind,“Vitra radiates a new spirit for condominium living within a vibrant urban neighborhood and is a celebration of an open culture with energy and life of an evolving city and region. A sculpted crystalline form, inspired by the dramatic beauty in the powerful natural resources of Brazil, Vitra creates a new icon for the city of São Paulo.” Construction is set to begin in July 2011.
