Project Description

Located in São Paulo, Brazil, the 75,000-square-foot triangular site is a united environment with the museum and landscape, rather than a singular institution. Large concrete slabs merge beneath ground level to create open spaces that are only partly underground, but also help to form an exterior plaza that feature pools.

Spanning across the museum is a 97-foot-long, 39-foot-wide beam that commands a presence but also gives shade and shelter to those outside.

The varying heights of the museum's ceilings also extend to the exterior functionality, acting as outdoor seating and steps to enhance the outdoor plaza. Paulo Mendes da Rocha complete this site in 1988.
