Brasília, the capital of Brazil, formally dedicated in 1960, seems more like an architectural myth, a fiction, than a real place. This book shows a unique juxtaposition of historic photographs from the "Arquivo Brasília," many of them published for the first time, and new photographic works by the artists.
