Fodor's Review

The front and back facades of Niemeyer's Justice Ministry have waterfalls that cascade between its arched columns. Besides the administrative offices, there's a library with more than 80,000 books. On the third floor there's a garden by Burle Marx. The Ministry is closed to visitors, but it's worth a look from the outside.
