Congresso Nacional aerial

The Palace of the National Congress, is the building built to house the National Congress of Brazil, opened in 1960. It was designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, with structural design by the engineer Joaquim Cardozo. It is one of the three monumental buildings that define the Praça dos Três Poderes, the others being the Planalto Palace and the Supreme Federal Court, also designed by Niemeyer and Cardozo. It is considered as the greatest symbol of the capital of Brazil, in addition to being frequently referred to as the icon of the country itself, abroad.


On a horizontal platform block there is a semi-sphere on the left (seat of the Senate), a hemisphere on the right (seat of the Chamber of Deputies) and, between the two, twin office towers (the so-called "Annex 1"), that rise to a hundred meters high. The congress also occupies other neighboring buildings, some of which are interconnected by a tunnel.


The building is located in continuity with the Eixo Monumental, the main avenue in the Brazilian capital, as designed by Lúcio Costa. In front of it is a large lawn, used by the population as a stage for demonstrations, protests and other public demonstrations. At the rear of the building is the Praça dos Três Poderes.

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.
