Photographer's Note

This is the TV Tower, the highest structure of the town with 224 meters, inaugurated in 1967 in a high spot of the Big Axis.It was created by Lcio Costa, the same architect who planned the town. In the base there is a museum of gems and few meters above there is a belvedere where you can see most of the city. Unfortunately I had no time to climb, there was a big line. I like the base of the tower, but not the metallic part.

Essa a Torre de TV, a mais alta estrutura da cidade com 224 metros de altura, inaugurada em 1967 num dos pontos mais altos do Eixo. A torre foi criada por Lcio Costa, o arquiteto que planejou a cidade. Na base da torre h um museu das gemas e mais acima um mirante de onde se v boa parte da cidade. Infelizmente no tive tempo para subir, havia uma fila na porta. Eu pessoalmente gosto da base de concreto, mas no da parte metlica de cima.
