Architecture buffs will check out Edificio Copán, an apartment building with 1160 units designed by Oscar Niemeyer. The units vary in size from 26 to 350 square feet housing residents of different incomes, a social experiment. The coffee bar at ground level is one of the best spots in the city to grab a cup o joe. I had an orange juice. d'oh! I couldn't help it, the OJ in Brazil is juiced right in front of you! It's delicious!

Also, nearby is Avenida São Luís. I really like this street!! Tre Elegant in a Modernist, "Mad Men" advertsing world way.

Address: Avenida São Luís or Av. Ipiranga or Rua Unal
Directions: I entered through a passage way up and across from Praca Dom Jose Gaspar into the back side of the building.
The building is inside the Triangle of Avenida Ipiranga, Avenida São Luís and Rua da Consolação.
