Description
Architect: Oscar Niemeyer, Eduardo Corona, Roberto José Goulart Tibau and Antonio Carlos Pitombo.
Finished: 26.01.1957

The Planetarium of the Ibirapuera was conceived for the festivities of IV Centenary of Sao Paulo, in 1954, but it was inaugurated only in January of 1957. From that time, even the closure of the building in 1999, when it stopped working, attended nearly 4 million visitors. However, in April of 2001, amid the Municipal Decree 40.384, the Town hall established partnerships with enterprises and private foundations, when he is carrying out a reform in the building.

Universum and Stars observatorium with 350 places.

Equipment: ZEISS III
The Equipment will be substituted by the model Star master of the Zeiss. The diameter of the dome was reduced for 18m with 300 places. It will be reopened in 2006.

The modern project, which will be going to substitute the previous thing, will tell of other peripheric projectors besides a sophisticated system of sound and image that it will make possible the immersion of the expectadores in the most incredible cosmic sceneries.
