I don’t know much about Brasilia. It is the capital of Brazil. It is, unlike the other major population centers in Brazil…inland. I’ve never been there.
“Oscar Niemeyer, today one of the most famous world’s architects, combined straight and rounded shapes to create innovative architectural masterpieces. Lucio Costa, reknowned Brazilian urbanist, devised a lay-out combining beautiness, simplicity and functionality.”
I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
Addition: The Atlantic Monthly has more on Brasilia, see: “A Vision In Concrete”
