Cyrela by Pininfarina, the first ever-residential tower designed by Pininfarina in partnership with Brazilian real-estate company Cyrela, in São Paulo, Brazil, won the prestigious International Architecture Award 2019.
Each year, the Chicago Athenaeum hosts the International Architecture Awards seeking to honor new and cutting-edge design worldwide. The 2019 judging panel for this year’s program was held in Vilnius, Lithuania, during which over 100 projects were selected from a shortlist of 380. Cyrela by Pininfarina, the 23-storied tower on the high-end Brigadeiro Faria Lima Avenue in São Paulo, was awarded for its standout design, beating a record number of projects from some of the globe’s most respected firms.
Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman, Pininfarina Group, said, “Cyrela by Pininfarina is our very first residential tower and architecture project in Latin America. This project has helped us to reimagine the future of São Paulo’s real-estate market, and it is great to have this larger mission recognized by the jury. Receiving this award is a great honor and speaks to our firm’s dedication to creating an innovative design that pushes the envelope.”
