Architecture Tour of Sao Paulo

We'll meet in the centre of Sao Paulo to discover the most representative buildings of this Brazilian city. On our trip, we'll have time to admire a vast variety of architectural styles, from colonial to contemporary, with some art deco in between!

We'll only have to turn around to see the Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo, the city's art museum, also known as MASP. Designed by one of the country's most important architects, Lina Bo Bardi, its red columns stand out from its modern structure. This iconic building has become a symbol of modern Brazilian architecture and is sure to impress!

We'll swap the museum for a skyscraper and discover the most notable work of architect Oscar Niemeyer: the Copan Niemeyer. With 38 floors and standing at 459 feet (140 metres) tall, this building is home to over 1,000 apartments, making it one of the biggest residential buildings in Latin America- it even has its own postcode!

As we walk through the centre of Sao Paulo, you'll see how the 19th-century European styles combine with more recent Brazilian architecture. Did you know that this contrast has made Brazilian architecture famous the world-over?

We couldn't finish our tour without mentioning Paulo Mendes de Rocha, one of the masters of Brazilian architecture, who even won the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2006 for his contribution. Do you want to discover his work?
