Photographer's Note

There are dozens of buildings in the bank sector of Bras韑ia city, but the most beautiful is this one.
The Central Bank of Brazil is the bank of the banks, it is a governamental bank ruling the banks, taking care of national economy and currency.
This building was built between 1975 to 1981, it is 101 meters high, being the highest skyscraper in the central Bras韑ia and only the third one in the Federal District, because there are two residential towers in another satellite city. As you will see ahead, the style of this building is very different the original ones that made the city famous because its modernist architecture.
As you can see the building is composed by four giant columns that support eight boxes of dark glass. The symbol of the bank is the view of this building from the air, as you will see in the link bellow:

In FG you can see a part of the second BIG AXIS. The architect who created Bras韑ia project did a cross in the land, a symbolic gesture, imitating the Portuguese taking possession of the land. Few time after someone noticed the project was imitating the shapes of a big plane and the project was named "Project Pilot", The main Axis is the body of the plane, this second big axis is its wings and the pilot cabin is located in the main square where the 3 powers of republic are located.
Bras韑ia is 62 years old today.

Existem v醨ios edif韈ios no setor banc醨io de Bras韑ia, mas esse o mais bonito. O Banco Central do Brasil foi erguido entre 1975 e 1981, com uma altura de 101 metros, sendo o mais alto pr閐io do Plano Piloto e apenas o terceiro do DF. Reparem que o seu estilo bem diferente dos pr閐ios pioneiros da cidade.
Como podem ver o pr閐io composto por quatro colunas imensas que sustentam oito caixas de vidro fum. O formato do pr閐io visto do alto o s韒bolo do banco.
No primeiro plano da foto aparece o segundo grande eixo rodovi醨io da cidade.
Quando o arquiteto LC criou Bras韑ia, tra鏾u duas grandes linhas criando uma cruz, imitando os portugueses ao tomar posse da terra. Depois algu閙 notou que o projeto lembrava as formas de um avi鉶, sendo que os dois grandes eixos rodovi醨ios eram a fuselagem e as asas e a cabine do piloto corresponderia Pra鏰 dos Tr阺 Poderes.
Hoje a cidade faz 62 anos.
