PALÁCIO DA ALVORADA
DAWN'S PALACE

I took this picture when I first visited Brasília back in 2008! That's the PALÁCIO DA ALVORADA / DAWN'S PALACE, "the official residence of the President of Brazil. It is located on a peninsula by the Paranoá Lake. The building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and built between 1957 and 1958 in the modernist style. It has been the residence of every Brazilian president since Juscelino Kubitschek. The building is listed as a National Historic Heritage Site. (Wikipedia)" Therefore, as I wasn't in any guided visit, I couldn't enter, so I had to take this picture from a certain distance! As I saw the pictures taken by that time, I decided to use this one as a hommage to OSCAR NIEMEYER, one of the greatest architects in the World, interrupting for a while my previous series!
