Torre Almirante is a new landmark inside the great architectural traditions in Brazil. It’s a 36 story building with a curving transparent facade which announces the luminous glow of the lobby: a 20’ (6m) tall sweeping lobby where the back-lit onyx wall creates a beacon at street level, visible through the doubleheight pedestrian arcade at the tower's base.
