    São Paulo Museum of Art, shot with a cell phone

    Hi. I've been to São Paulo this week, for a one-day business trip.

    Due to this very short time, I didnt have the chance to visit any of the wonderful places this city has, but I shot these during my morning walk, in the hotel area. This is the São Paulo Museum of Art, a structure whose main body is supported by two lateral beams (the ones in red) over a 74 meters freestanding space. It was build in the late 60's, and has been considered sort of a landmark back then.

    Shot with my Samsung Galaxy cell phone ("he" has been my official gear and partner during business trips this year!). C&C welcomed. Thanks for viewing!

    #5 - Trianon park, at the opposite side of the street (from where I shot the Museum).

    That's a very interesting building Otavio. I particularly like the perspective in #2.

    Not sure whether to congratulate you or the architect, so I will include you both. That architecture is striking, and I am so much a traditionalist that anything "modern" rarely moves me.

    Hi, Kevin. Thank you very much. Certainly, the architect deserves it much more than I do. And we have to bear in mind this was build in the 60's...

    Cheers,
