A landmark on Avenida Paulista, the FIESP building (short for Federação das Indústrias do Estado de São Paulo) is an interesting example of what architects could produce from concrete. The sloping façade was the creation of architects Luís Roberto de Carvalho Franco and Roberto Cerqueira César who designed the building in 1969. It houses the Centro Cultural Fiesp which contains an art gallery and a theatre.
The street sellers are popular in several places like in the big "Avenida Paulista". But in the old city center the streets are crowd of them ( called Camelô) and we can buy almost everything but sometimes this is disturbed by the police.....
