Photographer's Note

O Teatro Nacional é o maior conjunto arquitetônico realizado por Oscar Niemeyer em Brasília destinado exclusivamente às artes. É um dos pontos centrais de interesse turístico, numa cidade em que os monumentos impressionam pela sobriedade e rigor arquitetônicos.

Cross the Eixo Rodoviário, and on the north side of the rodoviária you’ll come face to face with another Niemeyer pyramid, housing Brasília’s prestigious Teatro Nacional Cláudio Santoro (Eixo Monumental/W3 Norte, tel. 61/3325-2216, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Mon.–Fri.). Dazzling from the outside, its glass-covered surface permits natural light to suffuse the lobby, where art exhibitions are displayed.
The lateral facades embossed with a sea of white cubes and rectangles are the work of Athos Bulcão, while the surrounding gardens featuring native plants are by Roberto Burle Marx.
