Brasilia, Brazil by Anna Mendes

BR

This map is a sample taken from the 380cm x 210cm panel, which I made for the Banca da Conceição. This place is a small and lovely store that sells books and local artists' works. It is located in the superquadra 308 Sul, which is considered a model city quarter in Brasília, with an urbanistic project by the architect Lúcio Costa and landscaping by Burle Marx. Also included in the project are the church of Nossa Senhora de Fátima, better known by the brasilienses as Igrejinha, which was designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer and has the external walls covered with tiles by the artist Athos Bulcão.
So if you go to Brasilia and want to know a little more about the history and architecture of the city, do not forget to visit the Igrejinha, the 308 Sul and the Banca da Conceição!

Esse mapa é um recorte do painel de 380cm x 210cm, que fiz para a fachada oeste da Banca da Conceição. Na verdade, a banca é uma pequena e adorável loja que vende livros e trabalhos de artistas da cidade. Está localizada na superquadra 308 Sul, considerada quadra modelo de Brasília, com projeto urbanístico do arquiteto Lúcio Costa e paisagismo de Burle Marx. Também compõe o projeto da quadra, entre outros, a igreja de Nossa Senhora de Fátima, mais conhecida pelos brasilienses como Igrejinha, que foi projetada pelo arquiteto Oscar Niemeyer e tem as paredes externas revestidas com azulejos do artista Athos Bulcão.
Portanto, se você for a Brasília e quiser conhecer um pouco mais da história e da arquitetura da cidade, não deixe de visitar a Igrejinha, a 308 Sul e a Banca da Conceição!

Beautiful Brasilia, Brazil by Anna Mendes

A capital do Brasil, inaugurada em 21 de abril de 1960, destaca-se por sua arquitetura moderna e é considerada Patrimônio Cultural da Humanidade, pela UNESCO. Os principais monumentos e edifícios governamentais foram projetados pelo arquiteto Oscar Niemeyer, e o plano urbanístico pelo arquiteto Lúcio Costa. Muito além da movimentação política, Brasília é uma cidade dinâmica, bonita e com gente legal, que adora viver nela. Essa ilustração é uma pequena homenagem à cidade onde nasci e cresci e da qual gosto muito, apesar da enorme dificuldade de me locomover por ela sem carro.

The capital of Brazil, inaugurated on April 21, 1960, stands out for its modern architecture and is considered a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO. The main monuments and government buildings were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, and the urban plan by the architect Lúcio Costa. Despite the politics, Brasilia is a beautiful and dynamic city with cool people who love living in it. This illustration is a small tribute to the city where I was born and raised. Although it is inconvenient not being able to get around easily without a car, I love Brasilia!
