brazillian metro arquitetos were commissioned to create a visiting area for the nestle factory in brazil – which is nearing completion. the main intention of the design was to highlight the generic landscape of the highway that joins são paulo and rio, revealing the presence of the new structure. that new visibility will be accomplished with the installation of two towers, made of glass and steel, that grant access to the new course, while functionally resolving the conflicting fluxes of products and visitors. the structural geometry and the materials used were designed as to trigger a sensory and perceptive experience and to contribute to the comprehension of the informations about the history and production of chocolate distributed along the course.
