I think it may have something do with a famous architect that recently passed away ... Unless I'm thinking of another, very similar building.

Belo Horizonte is right.

It used to be the Pampulha Casino, now it is the Pampulha Art Museum. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer as part of the Pampulha park around the lake. It was built between 1942 and 1944.

Photo of the same place today:

The newer photo is by Jose Gustavo A. Murt…, a native of Belo Horizonte.
