Sao Paulo Architecture, Brazil

The pace of urban change in São Paulo is dizzying. At the start of the last century, the Brazilian city had 239,000 inhabitants – today it has 11.2 million. Serving as a case-study for the contemporary explosive urban growth occurring across the world today, and taking their cue from Brazilian architectural maestros such as Oscar Niemeyer and Lina Bo Bardi, Sao Paulo is now home to a rising number of talented architects whose cutting edge structures and buildings illuminate the built landscape.
