Designed by Oscar Niemeyer in the modern Brazilian style, this architecturally intriguing office campus is a must visit for architecture and photography buffs. Having three prominent structures, the semi-sphere on the left is the seat of the Senate, the semi-sphere on the right is the seat of the Chamber of the Deputies and the two vertical towers between these two hold office spaces. The place offers guided tours of the campus.

Congresso Nacional, Brasilia Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really great. And with danish design furniture! Although I may have missed 95% of the guide instructions, it was still one of the great(est?) cultural/political experiences. This is the quintessential point of the fantastic achievement of building a capitol in five years. Also, it's a prefect scene for a contemplative 2 hours, walking these halls of power so sadly misused in these years with corruption, nepotism and selfishness.

  • Striking building which dominates the skyline. The tour was interesting, especially a room of artefacts from the old legislature, which must have been ornate.

  • Some good some bad. Have a lot of bandit and corrupt people working in the field of Brazilian government and then stolen much more than a justice can put all in the jail.

  • How come the embodiment of our social power is so segregated from society at all? Everything is so far apart, in an itself far apart region. This should be the congress house, surrounded by people to allow discussion and strengthen our ties. Yet it is in a totally separated from the rest of the country. It should be the Capital, yet it is a boring place.

  • Prostíbulo político ou Brazilian Political Red Light District.
