Brasilia in pictures: 50 great buildings, 50 years

Brasilia in pictures: 50 great buildings, 50 years
By Ellie Stathaki

You don't have to be an architecture expert to have heard of Brasilia. Contemporary Brazil's renowned capital was purpose-built in 1960, featuring a grand urban plan by Lúcio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer as its iconic principle architect and Roberto Burle Marx as the landscape designer, plus buildings from some of the country's finest architects.

Its urban planning design has been an example and universal reference to architects and urban planners ever since. And it was all beautifully designed in the era's most forward thinking style - the International Style - which Brazil took and made its own.

Today, home to some 2.6 million Brazilians and a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site, Brasilia is marking its 50th anniversary. Photographer Leonardo Finotti visited the Brazilian capital for this celebration and presented us with 50 great Brasilia buildings, one for each year of the city's much celebrated existence.

From famous Niemeyer buildings, to lesser known classic modernist structures like the Sarah Hospital by João Filgueiras Lima (Lelé) and the Nilson Nelson Arena by Ícaro Castro Mello - and even a few distinguished and beautiful private residences - our map of Brasilia has it all.

^That picturespamming doesn't do this topic any good.

Please just post a few pictures at the time and explain what is there to see (like the topicstarter did). Less is more!

Sharp pictures... judging by the light, all taken at roughly the same time of day. Where they're from?
It's Such a modernist's paradise. I'm digging the course brutalism of the DNIT and Italian Embassy. Still, my understanding is the cost of building this city was so great that it drove the country near bankruptcy and led to the military takeover in 1964. So a heroic and yet tragic accomplishment-

Hmm, not really.

I mean, inflation rose like hell, and our public debt was tripled, but nothing Brazil, with it's history of bad administrations that far hadn't experienced before (or would experience later, for that matter). What really motivated the military coup d'état was Janio Quadro's policy of reconciliation with the Soviet Union, and, specially, João Goulart's attempt to pass the Basic Reforms bill, even without the Congress's approval (you must understand, by that time Brazil had a tiny, yet ultra-conservative middle-class, scared of everything, but notoriously left-wingers), which gave the reactionary movement all the motivation they needed to label him despotic and throw him out of office. I think Brazil would have been a far better country if that reform bill was approved without major turmoil, but you know what they say, every nation deserves it's government

To know more about him, check the Wikipedia article, it's pretty well-done.

I wish I could see the city for myself, be there on the ground, walk around the streets. Maybe go inside some buildings? Great pictures! and a beautiful city!

Oh hell yes... if ever there was a single place to experience brilliant inspiring modern architecture this would be the place. It surely deserves a visit, I know I'll be going there when I hit Brasil, either next year or year after. Learning Portugues, that's going to be hard. Awesome city, must see

Why don't you guys wait 'til 2014?? By then, all the remodulations will be completed and the city will have gained yet another icon, the Brasília's National Stadium:
