  Catedral Metropolitana
by rui_bijie

The Catedral Metropolitana is one of several buildings designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in the 1960s for the Brazilian capital, Brasilia. The cathedral has sixteen curved columns and a stained glass interior. Standing near the entrance are four large statues known as the Four Evangelists. In his architecture, Niemeyer combined modernist techniques and materials with curving lines and free use of form reminiscent of the Brazilian baroque period.
