Library of FAU - Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism - University of Sao Paulo
Integrated Plan of Restoration and modernization
The remodelling of the library, an important department of a remarkable building declared a historical heritage of the modern movement, consisted of both an expansion of its area and the modernization of its facilities. The project was guided by the recovery of the original design (by arch. Vilanova Artigas), with coherent installations with the view to updating the library dynamics, which includes specialized sections of original drawings, maps, photographic records and laboratory for paper restoration, besides the constantly increasing collection of books and magazines.
Those targets were successful due to FAPESP’s sponsorship (Research Support Foundation of São Paulo State), whose investments were destined to renew the libraries of public universities, which are tuitions free in Brazil.
