Please add the following information to Centro Cultural Itaú in Sao Paulo

Add Info Steel Structure: 720 ton.
Interesting facts: This building headquarter of a cultural institute which belongs to a great Brazilian Bank Itaú, contains its administration and development areas to cultural projects. The building has modular areas for flexible ocupation.The structure makes a single frame that keeps sure the vertical stability of it. During construction the steel pieces were directly moved from truck and mounted in building as it did not have sotwage areas for the parts.

@LMich: See the thread in completed requests.

1- Correct floor. About floors, according to that source http://www.cbca-ibs.org.br/steel_tour_sp_12.asp says

'É composto de nove pavimentos-tipo (9), um pavimento térreo (0), mezzanino (1), um anexo ao primeiro pavimento e cinco sub solos (5).'
It means in Portuguese. I don't know if you can read this, but I translate.
9 - equal stories
1 - Mezzanino storey
5 - undergraound floors
Ground floor.
So, it comes 9+1+0=10 upper ones and 5 lower ones. :tup:

2- Correct name. The name of the building is CENTRO CULTURAL ITAÚ as this source. So please correct it. According to this official source:
The Itaú Cultural Webpage. :frog:

Thanks as always :cheers:

Again, floor 0 is counted as a floor, making this 11 stories. We've explained this to you, before. So, I was right, it's 11 stories, and 5 underground.

I'm also not adding the description word-for-word as it's a poor English translation. I've paraphrased it.
