      Primeiro Tribunal de Alçada Civil
    by MM212
 

Partly inspired by Mayan architecture, this flirtation with Art Déco architecture dominates the historic square, Pátio do Colégio. The imposing edifice has two remarkable cupolas and several stone-carved faces of angry men wearing winged helmets. The building was completed in 1930, by the offices of Ramos de Azevedo, Severo e Villares, for the Bolsa de Valores de São Paulo, a mercantile exchange, but since 1977, it has housed the Primeiro Tribunal da Alçada Civil (civil tribunal). It is unclear whether or not Ramos de Azevedo himself worked on the project (he actually died in 1928), but if he did, it would be a deviation from his typical Neoclassical and Belle Époque buildings in São Paulo, including two others on this very square.

Address: Praça Pátio do Colégio, 73/Rua Anchieta - CENTRO
