Facade architecture - David Carneiro Museum

Among the historians of Curitiba, Professor David Antonio Carneiro da Silva stands out due to his written and published work that was very important to rescue, preserve and disseminate the memory of Curitiba and Paraná.

The David Carneiro Museum was inaugurated in 1952, near the house of its owner, containing a representative collection of the History of Paraná and Brazil. It was shut in 1994 and its collection was incorporated to Paranaense Museum. The house of the historian that housed the museum with his name, was acquired by an international hotel and unfortunately only the facade was preserved.

  1. It is a very nice photograph. Love the fact that you show how the facade was incorporated into that huge tower.
