Instituto Moreira Salles
The Moreira Salles Institute, a non-profit organization founded in 1992 and devoted to promoting culture, has recently inaugurated a new space in São Paulo, right on Paulista Avenue. A gorgeous glass and iron construction, the new home of the institute has three beautiful exhibition spaces, a studio, classrooms, a theater and an excellent library devoted to photography.
The ground floor is left vacant, meaning visitors access the building through an open space accessed directly from Paulista Avenue, and climb the escalators up to the fifth floor, or “IMS Plaza”, which has a beautiful balcony overlooking the bustling avenue below.
Entry is completely free and the library also has rows of desks which serve as workspaces, making it an excellent place to bring your laptop and do some work away from home.
