This piece of Brazilian architecture was conceived in 1961 by São Paulo architects João Batista Vilanova Artigas and Carlos Cascaldi. Together with the architectural movement of the Paulista School, they form part of the most important history of São Paulo, because of the large amount of works they constructed there and the recognition of many of them at an international level. The project is based on the idea of generating spatial continuity. Therefore, its six levels are linked by a system of ramps in an attempt to give the feeling of a single plane and favor continuous routes, increasing the degree of coexistence and interaction among those who use it. The space is open and integrated, avoiding divisions and making it a functional place. It was imagined as a large, free, and central space with its functional areas distributed all around.
