New Monumental Square in Monumental Brasilia
A new square was designed to be built on the “Esplanada dos Ministério” in Brasilia.
This is the "Praça da Soberania" designed by Oscar Niemeyer to occupy the space beside the Bus station.
In addition to a daring futuristic design, the architect designed a huge underground parking for thousands of cars.
Like all new work in Brasilia, the idea of the "Praça da Soberania” has generated much controversy, with some for and some against it.
I liked the project, I think it complements the Esplanade and has the touch of genius of Oscar Niemeyer. I believe that project should be built.
