Best of Brazil

Last year, in cooperation with our network partner GA Rio de Janeiro, we realized two trips Best of Brazil. Those travels where highly appreciated by the participants. Fascinated by the spectacular journey we decided to offer another architectural excursion to Brazil for english speaking participants. This exciting trip will take us to São Paulo, Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro from 1st to 10th December 2017.

Brazil, the fifth largest country in the world, offers numerous attractions. It is known for its spectacular landscapes, beautiful beaches and an extensive cultural heritage. Oscar Niemeyer‘s visionary architecture amazes people worldwide until today. His friends Lucio Costa, Affonso Reidy, Olav Redig de Campos and more contributed to the movement of modern Brazilian architecture. The Ministry of
Education and Health, the Museum of Modern Arts in Rio and the Casa de Vidro in São Paulo are only a few examples of a list of remarkable buildings. The new capital Brasilia is probably the most impressive outcome of this time.

During the last years, Brazil caught worldwide attention with staging the World Cup 2014 and the Olympics 2016. Already the nomination for hosting these games increased the national feeling of pride and consciousness for its role as an international player. Even though criticism on the realization of the games was huge, there is a visible positive impact of these major events through the many infrastructural projects and improvements.

On our journey we will visit the three largest cities of Brazil – Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Brasilia.
Each one has its special atmosphere and architecture.

Best of Brazil: São Paulo, Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro 1st to 10th December 2017

With over 11 million inhabitants, São Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world and the most populous in the southern hemisphere. In this public economic, financial and cultural center of Brazil, there is the most lively architectural scene in Brazil and numerous contemporary projects to be discovered.

Rio de Janeiro, UNESCO World Heritage Site and also know as the Marvelous City because of its spectacular geographical setting between the sea and the mountains, combines urban lifestyle with beach life.

Highlight of the trip will surely be Brasilia. It was built by the two most famous architects of Brazil, Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer. A must-see for architecture lovers.
