Brasilia is known worldwide for having applied the principles established in the Athens letter of 1933 and which have brought the urban thinking of the 1950s. In this architecture tour in Brasilia you will discover the amazing art, design and architecture this city has to offer.
Its construction began in 1956, based on the urban project of the architect and urbanist Lucio Costa, known as “Plano Piloto“. The layout of the city resembles the shape of an airplane, with a main body and two side wings with superblocks (superquadras). It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987, being the only city built in the 20th century that has received this honor. The main architectural works of the city have been developed by the internationally known architect Oscar Niemeyer, and are the most iconic of modern Brazilian architecture.
