172. Clouds and palm trees
SEPTEMBER 2008: Clouds and palm trees
Casa do Baile, freely translated as: dance hall, is considered as one of the architectonic highlights at Lake Pampulha in Belo Horizonte. It was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the forties of the past century. Initially, the Casa served as a meeting point for dancing people. Nowadays, the Casa hosts a wide range of exhibitions, mainly modern art. The round building with the waving roof that extends over a row of columns are typical for Niemeyer`s work, and in concordance with the irregular shape of the artificial lake. The round and waving shapes are inspiring for interesting compositions, as seen on this picture, in combination with palm trees in a straight line. The open space in the middle shows the image of a slightly clouded sky, late in the afternoon.
