from 450.00

On this tour, we will explore the “wings” of the airplane. The residential area is divided into Superquadras, individual units of 280 x 280 meters (920 x 920 ft), each one containing four housing lots. The interior street is reserved for commercial use and between two Superquadras there is space kept for public infrastructure such as schools, sports fields or churches.

The University of Brasília was built in the 1970s by Oscar Niemeyer. The 700 meters long building has over 30 entrances. It is commonly said that the building represents democratic ideas through its symmetry; it is equally accessible from each point of the perimeter.
