Postal Building Architecture

Who observes Brazilian post office evolution will notice two opposite movements that complete each other: one is reform and the other is preservation.  One is tied to communications and globalized world outstanding advances; the other dedicated to conservation of national memory and cultural and architectural patrimony.  After all, not every company has behind it a past with over three and a half centuries of history.

The photos below illustrate Correios concern in preserving a historical patrimony from Brazilian people, by means of restoration and reform of buildings in different Brazilian capitals, transforming them into important preservation and cultural promotion centers.
