UrbanTec Brasil takes place at "Centro Cultural FGV” a modern venue located in between FGV´s headquarters and the new Oscar Niemeyer Tower. Both the Centro Cultural and the tower are part of the complex designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer. At the official laying of the foundation stone, FGV named the building in honor of him. Niemeyer's nephew, João Niemeyer, represented him in all stages of the building work. The complex was designed and built within modern sustainability parameters in order to positively impact society today and in the future from an ecological, economic and social point of view.

The complex has received various environmental certifications including the Green Seal & LEED certification, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, created by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) for developing high-performance buildings and environmentally sustainable. The certification is given to buildings that meet certain criteria from the beginning of construction, such as energy optimization, renewable energy use, land cover and outer casing, waste management, recycling, preservation and restoration of biodiversity, pollution reduction light among others.
