Sao Paulo: 5 Great Buildings

Sao Paulo: 5 Great Buildings

Producers Monstro Filmes have shared with us a gorgeous animation: an homage to the city of Sao Paulo and its five major architectural icons.

São Paulo: 5 Grandes Construções (Sao Paulo: 5 Great Buildings) highlights the Martinelli Building, Banespa, MASP, COPAN and Unique. Clearly inspired by "Chicago - Five Great Buildings," by Al Boardman, the video uses simple, fluid lines to represent and reveal each building's unique form.

For those familiar with Sao Paolo and its architecture, this video serves as a lovely reminder. For those who aren't, it's a great introduction.
