Looking thus through a detailed survey data, contribute to the protection of architectural heritage Thus, the inventory will check buildings or set of them from 1940s that still remain in the central quadrangle of the urban space of Presidente Prudente São Paulo, decade of economic boom that was reflected in numerous buildings in the downtown area, but even with the current process of redefining local centrality and deterioration of these regions, many of these buildings still remain as a record of that time.
