To the coming winds
Situated in the heart of the country and isolated deep in the Brazilian highlands, the country’s capital, Brasilia, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010. It was inaugurated in 1960, no more than three years after its conception. Invented by one man and his modernist visions, the original city was planned out to the very last detail – based on modernist observations and requirements. No elements of a city were left unplanned… except for the explosive population growth that ensued.
