JULY 2005: Casa do Baile
Casa do Baile, House of the Dance. The Casa is located at Lagoa da Pampulha, which is an irregular-shaped artificial lake. It is one of the projects designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer when he was creating the architectonic conjunction of Lagoa da Pampulha during the forties of the past century. The construction contains meandering lines that are characteristic for Niemeyer’s creations. In July, the columns were decorated with red veils, as if the columns were the bailarinas (dancers) of that month.
