374: Edifício Niemeyer
The phograph clearly shows the contours of a car seat with the headrest. It’s a windshield of a car, in which the Niemeyer Building is reflected. That day, it was sunny with a clear blue sky. Niemeyer Building, or Edifício Niemeyer in Portuguese, is located at Praça da Liberdade. Projected one decade of the Pampulha Architectonic Complex, the Niemeyer Building was built on the site of former Dolabela Palacete. Niemeyer got his inspiration by the natural curves of the mountain range that borders the city. When you look at the building, you would count fifteen floors. However, there are only eight floors, thanks to Baroque art and illusionism.
