The complete construction of the building, as predicted in the original project was never completed. Nevertheless, the CCSP has established itself as a center of support for experimental productions, a meeting point for artists, a place of coexistence that has taken the form of extension of people's homes.


Located in a strategic point of the city, crossed between the Vergueiro Street and 23 de Maio Avenue, close to Avenida Paulista and next to two subway stations, the institution has a significant number of visitors.

The project architects Luiz Benedito Telles and Eurico Prado Lopes dissolves the building in the topography of the land. Without barriers, invites passersby to enter. To break the rigidity of the concrete and steel, widely used in construction, architectural design foresaw huge glazed and hollow spaces, letting in natural light, and still kept,  in the center of the building, a garden of 700m2, where the original vegetation was preserved.
