Brasilia: 50 Years

This exhibition is a result of an initiative by the College of Architecture and Urbanism at Brasilia University, with the support of the Institute of Architects of Brazil, to capture the essence of Brasilia for the 50th anniversary of the city. Former students, journalists, and photographers were invited to show their vision of this World Cultural Heritage Site through photography. The exhibition highlights the nuances of Lucio Costa's and Oscar Niemeyer's masterpieces. Additionally the exhibition displays the ideas for Brasilia, the construction period (in late 50s), the early days of the city, its people, and city today.

The exhibition was curated by visiting scholar Otto Ribas, with the help of Bill Goldsmith, Kieran Donaghy, Abdurazack Karriem and his students, and city and regional planning faculty and staff.
