Faria Lima Plaza

Faria Lima Plaza (“FLP”) is a AAA office tower located on Avenida Faria Lima with 40,937 sqm (440,643 sf) BOMA over twenty floors and six underground parking levels containing over 1,200 parking spaces.


The Faria Lima Plaza tower is exceptionally well situated at the intersection of a large central plaza and the main avenue leading to the financial district of São Paulo.

The concept of the design is that of an ‘embrace’ of two forms elegantly and dynamically interlocked in a dance.

The tower floor plates vary slightly in size allowing for a variety of tenant options.

The material palette of bronze and glass with a dramatic, dark core is unique. The composition sits atop a contrasting, white granite stepped platform amidst a landscaped plaza replete with serene water features and benches tucked under the lifted tower.

Second Place – High-Rise Structures

Faria Lima Plaza, São Paulo, Brazil. The Faria Lima Plaza building represents a modern and innovative project, and it stands out mainly due to its differentiated architecture. The building is approximately 110 m (360 ft) high and has sloping pillars that change its direction along its length. The architectural concept of the project is based on two forms that intertwine with each other in an elegant and dynamic way, as in a dance. The bold architecture required high‐level engineering to be successfully built, considering not only the technical challenges of the project, but also the logistical difficulties of constructing a building of this size in a very busy region in São Paulo city. The building also obtained LEED Gold precertification, confirming a sustainable, efficient, and economical structure, with principles of smart growth and green construction. The study of the concrete was focused on obtaining optimized mixture designs with reduction of cement content and of CO₂ emissions into the atmosphere, also contributing to obtain a more sustainable construction. The structural solution for the foundation forecasted the construction of a combined footing with a volume of 1400 m³ (1830 yd³) of concrete and 3 m (10 ft) in height and required detailed thermal studies to define the concreting plan and the fresh concrete precooling levels. The inclined pillars designed by the architect made it necessary to perform several concrete tests, including creep tests for different concrete mixture designs. There is no record of another building project in Brazil for which this test was done. Faria Lima Plaza has already become a symbol among the many skyscrapers in São Paulo and has a huge potential to become an architectural and high‐level engineering reference in the largest city of South America.
