Shelter for the homeless

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-20-07-43The São Paulo Museum of Art, writes Dalrymple, is

a brutalist black glass-and-concrete block of pleasing proportions, elevated above the ground by four concrete structures, preserved from being completely dismal by their deep red coloration.

The raised block

provides shelter for some of São Paulo’s homeless who camp under it. I assume they are not an artistic installation. One never knows these days, the frontiers of art having expanded like Muscovy’s under Ivan the Terrible.
