GPA&A Designs Floating Administrative Center for Belo Horizonte

Brazilian Firm GPA&A was unanimously chosen by a panel of judges to design the new Administrative Center for Belo Horizonte – the capital of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The judging commission selected the firm’s proposal because of its attention to accessibility, sustainability, and the quality of architectural and landscaping features. The transparent building features a bikeway leading to the top floor and is integrated with the metro and bus rapid transit systems. For more information and images, continue after the break.
