Copan Building


The Copan Building, designed by Oscar Niemeyer with the participation of Carlos Lemos, is one of the symbols of the city of São Paulo and a landmark of modern Brazilian architecture. Commissioned by the Pan American Hotel and Tourism Company for the celebrations of the IV Centenary of the city of São Paulo, in 1954, it had its construction started in 1951, being completed only in 1966 due to technical and financial problems. Since its inauguration, the Building has consolidated itself as one of the most famous and important in the city of São Paulo, marking the landscape of the central region with its famous wavy silhouette.


Instituto Pedra Institute was selected through internal competition carried out by Copan to carry out the architectural project for the restoration of the building's facades, seeking solutions for the replacement of the tiles on the north facade and the problems on the south facade.
