Shopping category in 2011 event for the World architecture festival was full of nice, simple and convenient nominated projects.
But only of them have won the juries` attention and their best regards. The winner is the vanguard building named Decameron and by its name it is to expect something magical and reasonable, as well. Decameron – the winner in the shopping category in the festival for world architecture is set in Sao Paolo and shines across its whole commercial street.
Decameron building – World Architecture Award 2011
The building Decameron was awarded with the world architecture award for two reasons – first of all, it is extremely eccentric as to its shapes, color schemes and construction, and second of all – it perfectly does its job – and its function is to gather people`s look in order to make them enter the shopping centre and buy. The urban look of the Brazilian masterpiece is making a fantastic collaboration with the natural exterior – another interesting conception in the contemporary architecture in the world.

Architecture award is given by the juries because they see some really successful potential in the Decameron building. You have to admit that this building has definitely the ability to accommodate lots of store – this becomes possible thanks to the zones that are divided and separated. They are called containers by the constructors and the designers of the building and they all have their personal color and interior making us believe that the world architecture consists of so many individual and personalized projects!

Decameron is a project that gathers retro spirit and modern look of world architecture trends. This delicate combination is emphasized with the present of the glass and wood materials and the double themed exterior conception – a little bit country and a little bit urban. Brazilian architectures actually have never been counting on one idea, one plan or one structure – they match things, they assemble parts and pieces and they finally present one of the best architecture in the world.
