TV Tower by Lúcio Costa.
Located on Brasilia's Monumental Axis, the Television Tower rises out of the center of town, and from its top you can see the entire city. There are other attractions around the tower, like a crafts fair.
The tower was completed in 1967 (the observation platform was opened in 1965) with 218 m, but in 1987 received more 6 m. Now the TV Tower is 224 m height.
More about Brasilia: The Capital City of Brazil created ex nihilo (out of nothing) in the centre of the country in 1956, was a landmark in the history of town planning. Inaugurated in 1960 (April 21st) it has a population of about 2,557,000 as of the 2008 census estimate, making it the fourth largest city in Brazil.
Brasilia is a masterpiece of modernist architecture. It is the only city in the world built in the 20th century to be awarded (in 1987) the status of Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Brasilia is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2010.
