  • A model of the pilot plan of Brasilia, dark, hot, dimly lit, underground to honor the founder of the city. I don't know if Lúcio Costa would like to see the way was honored: underground, in the Plaza of the three powers. As for me was curious, the visit thanks ...

  • This space is little seen, but should be, speak a little of the life of this personality, creator of the pilot plan.

  • The Lúcio Costa Space is well hidden at the Plaza of the three powers, but well worth the visit! It's quite interesting! Has a huge model of the pilot plan. Loved it!

  • Small gallery where are exposed through models, drawings and photographs the construction of Brasilia by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in collaboration with the landscape architect Burle Marx, and the ceramist Athos Bucão. It deserves a small look to get a general idea of the city

  • History of the founding of the city. The model is beautiful, but is in need of restoration. The tactile model is a differential, as well as the lift which ensures accessibility.
