Brasília and the West Sights



Palácio do Planalto Review

Niemeyer gave this highly acclaimed structure, the office of the President, an unusual combination of straight and slanting lines, a variation of the design of Palácio da Alvorada. The access ramp to the main entrance is part of the national political folklore, because it represents the rise to power (presidents go up the ramp when inaugurated).
