Brasília is the federal capital of Brazil and seat of government of the Federal District. The city is atop the Brazilian highlands in the country's center-western region. It was founded on April 21, 1960, to serve as the new national capital. Brasília was planned and developed by Lúcio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in 1956 to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro to a more central location. The city's design divides it into numbered blocks as well as sectors for specified activities, such as the Hotel Sector, the Banking Sector and the Embassy Sector. Brasília was chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its modernist architecture and uniquely artistic urban planning. The city has been both acclaimed and criticized for its use of modernist architecture on a grand scale and for its somewhat utopian city plan. Considering this Brasília is a inspiration for many designers and artists. The purpose of this poster is to present the embroidered maps of Brasília developed by authoress. These maps aims a city of representation and a connection with its monumental lines. Embroideries in question were initially inspired by the architect Frederico de Holanda texts. But now the authoress seeks an own composition of your maps.
