Planned and developed in 1956 by principal urban planner Lúcio Costa and architect Oscar Niemeyer, on 21 April 1960 Brasilia became Brazil’s national capital.
The transatlantic diablog zoom features unreleased and exclusive video footage of the newly erected town shot in the year of its completition.
Same as Washington D.C. and Canberra in Australia, Brasilia was a purpose-built capital. Developed to populate and strengthen the Mideastern landscapes of the country.
Viewed from above the town’s structure looks like an aeroplane.
