Edifício Triângulo (in english Triângulo Building) is called “Triangle” because it occupies a small plot in triangular shape. It is one of the works of the satellite-office that the famous Oscar Niemeyer kept in São Paulo in the 1950´s, under the supervision of architect Carlos Lemos.
Although it has lost some of its main characteristics, it was built on a Niemeyer project, eternalized Brazilian architect responsible for the public buildings in Brasilia and winner of Pritzker Prize (considered the Nobel Prize of architecture) in 1988. Due to the urban legislation of the period of the construction, its diameter decreases on the top floors, following the “wedding cake” shape.
The entrance of the building has a huge pastille mosaic of the artist Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, one of the most important names of Visual Arts in Brazil.
