National Theatre Brasilia, Brazil, 3D Model.Brasilia, one of the newest cities in the world was designed, constructed and inaugurated in central Brazil with one specific purpose: Being the capital of the country. Fifty years ago, the men behind this huge project had one dream in common. Building the city of the future. A city for people, with generous open spaces everywhere, where men could see the horizon, feel the breeze, be part of that environment, and at the same time would be surrounded by modern and functional buildings, designed for turning everyday life and activities into something rational and conveniently agreeable.
Planned for a maximum population of 500,000 there would be no traffic jams and no traffic lights. Brasília was built to be, not only a showcase of Brazilian architectural art, but also a city for the people. But then… it started growing up much more rapidly than anyone could expect. Today there are almost two million people living here, and yes, a lot of traffic lights and traffic jams. Even so, you can’t say the initial idea didn’t succeed. As an architectural experience, or a dream of a futuristic city, this place, head of the Brazilian government, is a unique one. Definitely Brasilia remains today as one of the most interesting places in the world, apart from any other.
