@kaa You’ve hit on one of my favourite topics, Brasília! Not sure I‘d look to it as an example of great urban planning, however. I touched on its failings in a talk I gave a few years ago.

@paulrobertlloyd Nice. Thanks for that link, will do a deep dive. You are right it has some questionable decisions, borne of the time and place (and certainly not inline with modern thinking), but the elegance of the architecture is undeniable :).

@kaa Oh yeah, I’m a huge fan of Niemeyer’s architecture – I even slept in one example once!
