Gallery: Brasilia, the Architect Paradise

What’s the capital of Brasil? Rio de Janeiro? Sao Paolo? No. It’s Brasilia. In the 1950’s the Brasilian government wanted to raise a new capital, right in the middle of the country. Surrounded by jungle the city was built in just a few years. The cityplan, designed by Lucio Costa, is astonishingly organized, in the shape of an airplane. Now Brasilia is a paradise for architectlovers, with many modern buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
