The Exaltation Room, a space where the structure of the grandstand is off the slope that supports it, puts the visitor in direct contact with the original architecture and the topography that has influenced the design of the neighborhood and the stadium itself. There, the slopes are apparent and the smell of damp earth completes the sensory experience. © Nelson Kon

The project involved the restoration of the front building Pacaembu Stadium, which opened in 1940. © Nelson Kon Suspended by steel rods, a wooden walkway installed on the monumental gateway connects the two halves of the route and promotes a dialogue with the external space, Charles Miller Square. © Nelson Kon In the entrance hall, is clearly one of the biggest operations of the project: the removal of walls, slabs, beams and columns so that the original structure of the stadium was visible. Thus, the architecture has become an integral part of the museum experience. © Nelson Kon Independent activities allocated on the threshold between the Museum building and the square attract new patrons to the site previously underutilized despite its 30 thousand square meters. © Nelson Kon +18

The Windows of New York and São Paulo

A little over a year ago, New York City-based graphic designer José Guizar started illustrating an obsession of his that had quickly grown since moving into the city: New York’s varied and eclectic windows. “A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city,” Guizar writes on his website. “This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.”

Others have since been inspired by Guizar’s colorful and captivating homage to the windows of NYC, and earlier this year São Paulo-based Nara Rosetto began her own weekly illustrations of windows in South America’s largest city.

Ranging from Victorian and porthole windows to windows with security bars, planting boxes and the occasional cat, the windows are as varied as the cities and buildings they occupy. 

Read on after the break for a journey through the windows of New York and São Paulo.

With more than 7 billion people now alive, the greatest population growth over the last century has occurred in urban areas. Now, a new series of interactive maps entitled "The Age of Megacities" and developed by software company ESRI allows us to visualize these dramatic effects and see just how this growth has shaped the geography of 10 of the world’s 28 megacities. Defined as areas with continuous urban development of over 10 million people, the number of megacities in the world is expected to increase, and while Tokyo still tops the list as the world’s largest megacity, other cities throughout Asia are quickly catching up. Find out more after the break.

Nestled in São Paulo's bustling Vila Madalena neighbourhood in Brazil, the slim silhouette of AIR Madalena soars skyward from the street below. The elegant tower will be home to six lofts varying from 100 to 140 square metres, each with an open-air terrace and ample windows to maximize the panoramic views of São Paulo. Designed and built by São Paulo and Paris-based firm Triptyque and realized by the firm's high-end real estate wing IV, the slender building is promised to be completed within 24 months.
