Igrejinha da Pampulha4
Brazil

Church of Saint Francis of Assis, known as "Igrejinha da Pampulha", in reference to the neighborhood where it is located - Pampulha, was built between 1943 and 1944, but was opened to the public only in April 1959, due to differences between clerics about the painting of St. Francis of Assis produced by Candido Portinari. The architectural design of the church belongs to Oscar Niemeyer.


It is considered the masterpiece of the set. In designing the chapel, Oscar Niemeyer makes new experiments in concrete, abandoning the slab under stilts and building a parabolic vault in concrete, until then only used in hangars. The vault in the chapel at Pampulha would be, at the same time, structure and closure, eliminating the need for masonry. Initiates what would be the guideline for all his work: an architecture where will be preponderant the plasticity of the concrete structure, with bold, unusual and striking shapes.

Journalists of the time called attention to the form of the church reflected in the pond: it would resemble the hammer and the sickle of communism, the political movement at which Niemeyer has always been linked.

    More About Brazil

    Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
