When I’m in São Paulo, one of my favorite places is the Ibirapuera Park. I like to go to do my daily run and enjoy to make a little of the exhibitions that happen in the museums found there.
Among my favorites is the Lucas Nogueira Garcez Pavilion, popularly known as OCA, nickname that won by having the format similar to that of a hollow.
The Lucas Nogueira Garcez Pavilion was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1951 to compose the original architectural set of the Ibirapuera Park, built to commemorate the IV Centenary of the City of São Paulo, which took place in 1954. The OCA housed the Museum the Aeronautics of São Paulo and the Museum of Folklore, more recently the building has been used to house major exhibitions.
The Lucas Nogueira Garcez Pavilion is inside the Ibirapuera Park and operates from Tuesday to Saturday from 11 AM to 8 PM and on Sundays from 11 AM to 6 PM. The easiest access to the place is through gate 3 – Av. Pedro Álvares Cabral and you can access the site to have information about current and upcoming exhibitions.
