Building a better São Paulo

São Paulo, and Brazil more broadly, are near the top of my list of places that I want to visit. 

Starting in the 1930s, Brazil became an early adopter of modern architecture with projects like the Ministry of Education and Health Building. It was one of the first countries outside of Europe to push modernism.

So I am overdue for a tour of Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa’s work.

Here is a short 7 minute video from Monocle about some of the ways in which São Paulo is reinventing its city center.

It is for the launch of their new book, The Monocle Guide to Building Better Cities, and it got me excited about visiting the city (and country) sometime soon.
