Nearest is the rectangular, National Library, then spherical exhibition centre, then the Cathedral, in the background — one of ministries. All creations of  Oscar Niemeyer.


At Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Parliament of Brazil; two spherical shapes, convex and concave, are upper and lower chambers (again all by Oscar Niemeyer).


Church of St. Dom Bosco.
