VIDEO: 5 Great Buildings of São Paulo

To the careless visitor they are hard to spot and to the tired Paulistano they are easy to forget but lost amongst the endless sea of skyscrapers are some architectural gems.

The video below, by Monstro Filmes, helps us to take a step back and appreciate 5 iconic triumphs of São Paulo architecture. In a simple but beautifully put together video we're given a chronological portrait of the following buildings:

The majestic Martinelli
Niemeyer's curvaceous Copan building
The bright and bold MASP
The watermelon-shaped 5-star hotel
