Oct. 19, 2006 - Out Shooting


A typical Brasilia apartmet building, which like the rest of the city was designed by Oscar Niemayer. Cecilia's Grandfather explained me that the buildings are designed without a ground floor in order to appear lighter and to allow a view through them from from street level. That way you don't feel like you're in a maze which is the case in most cities. The buildings are also no higher than six stories so you can always see the sky.
