What You Can Expect

Private Architecture Tour of São Paulo

Architecture School of SP by Villanova Artigas

Upon pickup from your hotel by private vehicle, meet your knowledgeable guide and get to know the impressive architecture of São Paulo. As you tour the vibrant city, view buildings that display a wide variety of architectural designs, from colonial structures made out of taipa, a traditional Brazilian-style material, to modern constructions like the Unique Hotel, designed by São Paulo native Ruy Ohtake.

Spot several European architectural styles developed since the mid-19th century and get to know Brazil’s 20th-century modernist school of architecture, which made the country famous throughout the world. Admire works by architects like Oscar Niemeyer, such as the Edifício Copan and see the São Paulo Museum of Art, developed by Lina Bo Bardi -- famous for her modernist Glass House in the Morumbi neighborhood. Be amazed by the neoclassical, art nouveau, brutalist and contemporary styles that coexist within the metropolis.

Before return transport to your hotel, your guide will tell you about the famous architects who contributed their talents to build São Paulo, such as Ramos de Azevedo and Vilanova Artigas. Learn about Isay Weinfeld’s Livraria da Vila (a bookshop with revolving shelves), as well as the museums and art galleries of Paulo Mendes da Rocha, such as the New Leme Gallery.
