Brasilia, Catedral Metropolitana

Catedral Metropolitana de Brasilia

The Cathedral of Brasília in the capital of the Federative Republic of Brazil, was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and dedicated on 31 May 1970. This concrete-framed hyperboloid structure, seems with its glass roof to be reaching up, open, to heaven and only 70 diameters of the circular area were visible. The hyperboloid structure itself is a result of 16 identical assembled concrete columns. The architecture arguably builds upon the design of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
