OSCAR NIEMEYER - MILITARY COLLEGE


Oscar Niemeyer - Military College (Colégio Militar), Brasilia DF, Brazil (1976)

Continuing with Brasilia´s West Axis week, today we present this huge military building, with its inclined expressive parasols. As we are used to see on Niemeyer´s project the concrete is the main material.
