So Paulo: Quick City Overview












City: So Paulo
State: So Paulo
Place: Quick City Overview








So Paulo, for its nature of impressively large city, has many identities amongst its complete territory. It has the variables of all of the biggest world capitals: it aborbs the towns and suburbs who stand on its limits while it continuosly keeps growing, it becomes the financial center of the region and furthermore the spotlight of the industrial sector in the country. So Paulo can be seen from two points of vew: from the air, where you can actually watch dozens of kilometers of buildings, and on foot, where the size of the city goes unnoticed. That is interesting because it shows how deep the modern urbanistic system managed to penetrate on Brazil: big avenues and highway networks, the predominance of the private gardens and open green spaces, and a substantial distance between the buildings. It’s also interesting to see the difference with the old brazilian architecture who always had an imperial vibe, from the portuguese churches and residences to the huge public and private palaces of the beginning of the 20th Century. The core of the city itself is the Paulista Avenue and the Downtown along with its surroundings neighborhoods, lost in decay in the last decades, but who still conserves some of the most important buildings of the city and the country: the Altino Arantes, the Copan and Italy Building, the Pinacoteca, the Municipal Theatre and the Estao da Luz Railway Station.

So Paulo: Paulista Avenue












City: So Paulo
State: So Paulo
Place: Paulista Avenue








The Paulista Avenue is probably the most important avenue of Brazil, iconic for its concentration of economic wealth and cultural life, aswell as for its catalogue of modern architecture of the second half of the 20th Century who characterizes the country. It’s also the main tourist area of Sao Paulo and it shares the same facets of the most important avenues of the world like the constant streetlife 24/7, the chaotic traffic on the rush hours, and the concentration of museums, theatres, shopping malls, and the most exclusive hotels of the city. However, the most interesting side of the Paulista Avenue appears on the weekends, when it turns into huge pedestrian street with public spectacles and some sort of “bycicle” avenue in the middle.

So Paulo: Itlia & Copan Buildings












City: So Paulo
State: So Paulo
Place: Itlia & Copan Buildings







The architecture that can be seen nowadays in the cities of Brazil is the result of the Modern mentality that was adopted in the country since the middle of the 20th Century. In that specific period, the architects usually experimented only with the election of the materials, and the colours of those materials, often steel or reinforced concrete, depending on the country. That is the kind of architecture who act as some sort of “densifier” of the neighborhoods of nowaday cities. So the History of the Skyscrapers in Brazils lies, mostly, in Sao Paulo. And two of the most relevant examples of that history are the Italia Building and Copan Building, the first one built by Franz Heep and the second one by the famous brazilian architect scar Niemeyer. While the Italia utilizes the usual vertical lines of the random modern skyscrapers of that era, the Copan Building is far more interesting because of its 3 blocks of horizontal lines, resulting on a very heavy building that was often the style of scar Niemeyer.







Itlia Building

So Paulo: Pinacoteca do Estado de So Paulo












City: So Paulo
State: So Paulo
Place: Pinacoteca do Estado de So Paulo







Placed in front of the Jardim da Luz, the headquarters of the “Pinacoteca” (Lyceum of Arts and Crafts) is one of the most relevant museums and one of the main tourist destinations in So Paulo. The building was modernized by the architects Torres, Colonelli and Mendes da Rocha. The vast collection of the Pinacoteca is focused on the last two centuries of the Brazilian Art, with very important artists such as Almeida Jnior, Oscar Pereira da Silva, Eliseu Visconti, Tarsila do Amaral and Flvio da Carvalho.

So Paulo: Metr












City: So Paulo
State: So Paulo

With an extension of almost 75 kilometers and a direct connection with the metropolitan rail network (CPTM), the Metro of Sao Paulo crosses the montainous geography of the city with tunnels, open-space sectors and even bridges. It’s the third most important subway network of Latin America after Mexico City and Santiago de Chile. It’s currently used by more than 3 million passengers everyday and it makes more than 1 billion travels per year. Its newest line is the Line 15, still in construction.
