This Friday, architects Marcelo Rosenbaum and Guto Requena celebrated the launch of the new Edifício Brasil. The project, very in sync with urban issues, is a promising step toward the revitalization of downtown São Paulo – and Glamurama talked to Guto to learn about his favorite hot spots in area. "I love the Almanara restaurant, the very first one, at Basilio da Gama street, near 7 de April. It has amazing stained glass windows, good food and something a bit tacky that I love," he joked.

* He also pointed out the graffiti of the duo osgemeos in Anhangabaú, a climb to the top of Edifício Martinelli and a visit to Mário de Andrade Library. "It has been fully renovated and has a project by an amazing architect, Jacques Pilon." Did you write all that down?
