DESCRIPTION – Porto Alegre: Contemporary architecture
Porto Alegre offers a mix of representative buildings of modern style or contemporary architecture, in addition to being one of the cities that hosted the 2014 World Cup. Accompanied by a guide, you can visit the Iberê Camargo Foundation ( Álvaro Siza). The project, which received the Golden Lion at the Architecture Biennale in Venice in 2002, stands out on the Guaíba border.
In addition, we will also visit the new sports infrastructure facilities, such as the Beira Rio Stadium and / or the Grêmio Arena. Attention is focused on the Arena roof, which has a metal structure and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane. In the Arena, which has LEED certification, we can verify technical solutions that guarantee a better thermal comfort and the impact in a little peripheral zone.
