Brasilia

 

Brasília, the capital of Brazil, is a planned city. Inaugurated in 1960 in the Central Highlands of Brazil, it is a masterpiece of modernist architecture listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and attracts architecture aficionados worldwide.

The basic structure of Brasilia was completed in just four years, from 1956 to 1960, under the leadership of President Juscelino Kubitschek, with the slogan “fifty years of progress in five”, and the city is in a sense a memorial to him.

 

A huge artificial lake serves the city as both a leisure area and to diminish the effects of low humidity in drier months (see Climate below).

Brasília was chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its modernist architecture.[5]

The centers of all three branches of the federal government of Brazil are in Brasília, including the Congress, President, and Supreme Court.

Landmark Architecture

The city is designed in the shape of a giant bird or airplane, with various separated zones assigned for specific functions such as housing, commerce, hospitals and banking. Running down the center of the "airplane's" fuselage is the thoroughfare called the Eixo Monumental ("Monumental Axis") and at one end lay the government buildings.

The arched "wings" are residential zones, with several rows of medium-rise apartment blocks with small commercial districts. The intersection is the commercial and cultural hub, with stores, hotels, and the cathedral.
Global City
Brasília had an estimated population of 2,789,761 in 2013, making it the 4th most populous city in Brazil. As Brazil’s capital, it also hosts 124 foreign embassies, giving it a cosmopolitan feel.
