Artist's Description

The city of Brasilia, Brazil. The city was planned and developed in 1956 with Lúcio Costa as the principal urban planner and Oscar Niemeyer as the principal architect. On April 22 of 1960, it formally became Brazil’s national capital.

The city has been acclaimed for its use of modernist architecture on a grand scale and for its somewhat utopian city plan. It has been criticized for the same reasons.

Brasilia is the only city built in the 20th century to be award World Heritage Status by UNESCO.

This building is part of the military headquarters in Brasilia. Designed by Niemeyer, the curve includes acoustic brilliance in that microphones are not needed for speeches given in that area.
