Soul do Brasil

Modern Architecture Tour

The charm of curves and lines across the country's capitals

Brazilian Modern Architecture is acclaimed worldwide to this day. Brazil has two architects recognized with the Pritzer Prize (Oscar of architecture), both modern exponents of the country: Oscar Niemeyer and Paulo Mendes da Rocha. Recognized for their brutalist production, both are part of a group of professionals that gave rise to the modern Brazilian style, unmistakable and reproduced in many places around the world. However, despite the punctual productions that can be visited in several Brazilian cities, it is in the country’s capital, Brasília, opened in 1960, that the Modern Brazilian had its heyday. A pioneer in the world, the city had its pilot plan designed by Lúcio Costa and its buildings created by Niemeyer.
