BR445 - Brasilia (1987)

Brief Description

"Brasilia, a capital created ex nihilo in the centre of the country in 1956, was a landmark in the history of town planning. Urban planner Lucio Costa and architect Oscar Niemeyer intended that every element – from the layout of the residential and administrative districts (often compared to the shape of a bird in flight) to the symmetry of the buildings themselves – should be in harmony with the city’s overall design. The official buildings, in particular, are innovative and imaginative."


"始建于1956年的巴西利亚位于巴西的中心,是城市规划史上的里程 碑。城市规划师卢西奥·科斯塔(Lucio Costa)和建筑师奥斯卡·尼迈尔(Oscar Niemeyer)认为城市中的一切元素都应该与城市的整体设计相吻合,巴西利亚城的城市布局常常被形容为“飞翔的鸟”,因为城市的行政管理区域和居民住 宅区域布局对称,同时城中的每个建筑物也都是对称的,特别是政府办公楼,体现了极强的创新精神和丰富的想象力。"
