OSCAR NIEMEYER - LUCIO COSTA SPACE


Oscar Niemeyer - Lucio Costa Space (Espaço Lucio Costa), Brasilia DF, Brazil (1980)

Descending a staircase from Praça dos Três Poderes you can find a buried space with a huge model of Brasilia, tribute to Lucio Costa, the designer of Brasilia Plan (Plano Piloto), built by Niemeyer.
