Textbook He is known for his provocative use of concrete and steel in innovative architectural designs that are both critically acclaimed and popular. Widely credited with revitalizing the city, Paulo Mendes da Rocha has contributed many notable cultural buildings to his native SÃ£o Paulo. While perhaps best known for his Brazilian Sculpture Museum in SÃ£o Paulo (1988), his other notable built projects include the Brazilian pavilion at Expo ‘79 (Osaka, 1969), Serra Dourada Stadium (GoiÃ¢nia, 1973), Pinacoteca do Estado (SÃ£o Paulo, 1993), and FIESP Cultural Center (SÃ£o Paulo 1997). He has also designed furniture, such as the iconic Paulistano Armchair which was reissued in 2004 by French furniture and accessories retailer Objekto.
