City Plate - Brasilia

$50.00
Part of our third series of City Plates.  The theme of this third collection is "Capital Migration."  Three of these cities were at one time seats of government; one became its nation’s capital in 1960.  All remain centers of economic power, cultural leaders, and symbols of their country’s national identity.

Brasilia is futuristic and ambitious.  It was principally designed by Lucia Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in what has been termed the "Pilot Plan."  Its 41-month construction began in 1956, and it was inaugurated as Brazil's new capital in April 1960, when the government migrated from its two former capitals: Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.  A huge influx of migrants instantly created a larger city than any planner had envisioned.
