pinacoteca – entrance hall

Pinacoteca holds the art collection of the State of São Paulo, and is located in the 19th century building designed by Ramos de Azevedo, later renovated by Pritzker Prize Winner Paulo Mendes in the 1990s. His project recreates circulation inside the building, including great orthogonal axis of the elevator and the passages. It also altered the access of visitors, which is now made through what used to be the side of the building. The museum’s adaptation also transforms its former outside area into an inside area with a glass covering on its old yard with its Octagon.

Recently revamped by Arquitetos Associados, the new main entrance hall has our Campo modular system.
