The new Iberê Camargo Foundation headquarters preserves the collection of more than 4000 works by the master of Brazilian expressionism in nine art galleries. This is the first project by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza in Brazil. The building is an international landmark in architecture and engineering solutions. One of the design’s innovative features is its reinforced-concrete construction throughout, without the use of bricks or sealing elements, forming curved outlines like a great sculpture to feature the form and movement of the ramps built on all floors. It is built entirely from white concrete, which dispenses with painting and finishing and also brings it a feeling of lightness. All the power and service ducts are inside the walls, insulated with fiberglass, allowing the installation of permanent or temporary dimmable sockets and lighting anywhere in the rooms.
