Brazilia, Capital of Brazil Images Kalpana Image Archives - South America

All these images are from Brazilia, capital of Brazil. These images are from a visit to Brazilia in 2011.

Because of its strange looking buildings and monuments, to me Brazilia seems like the city of giants from Gulliver's travels, the well known book of Jonathan Swift. The city was made completely from scratch in 1960s, designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, friend and follower of Corbusier, who had designed Chandigarh (India). Like Chandigarh, Brazilia also makes ample use of reinforced cement and is divided in modules (sectors) in a logical way, so that all hotels are in one area, all shops in another, all offices in another and all residential areas in another. Actually Brazilia has limited residential areas, and most persons working in the city, live in the satellite towns around the city. The huge cup and bowl architecture of the assembly building, the underground cathedral full of glass and light, the giant ball of the national opera, Brazilia is completely unlike any other city in the world. I don't think that I would like to live there, but I love it.
