Sao Paolo Day 1

A morning walk that led form the hotel in Higienopolis to Largo Republica- the name of which remained me of my undergraduate thesis in Margao. From there to the Church Square- Ze. A city of churches on squares and three dimensional road structures- horizontal and vertical- some I suspected were built on older water systems. And on the outskirts of the old city- the high modernist towers- with concrete grills that open and stilt areas with expressive form finished concrete.
Later, after an interview with a newspaper on the pedestrian Avenue PAulistana I walked to the brilliant Lina Bo Bardi museum.
