Casa Do Baile, Belo Horizonte

4.1
Part of the "Pampulha Architectural Complex" that brought architect Oscar Niemeyer international acclaim and popularity in the 1940s, Casa Do Baile was designed as a small restaurant/dance hall, built on its own artificial island. It includes a circular block from which a free-form marquee unravels, following the contour of the island. After the building’s completion, this free-form design became wildly popular in Brazilian architecture, adding to Niemeyer’s already enviable global reputation. The site is close to the Pampulha Art Museum and is a must-see for all lovers of modern architecture. Don’t leave before walking down to the nearby lagoon, where you can take photographs of this key cultural area and its important landmark.
