Brasilia Homelessness

During the last twenty years, poverty levels have exploded along with the urban population. Thus, the homeless have become a dramatic feature of the Brazilian urban landscape. In Brasilia as in other Brazilian cities, their number are increasing, and so is their visibility: cardboard houses, blue plastic tents, and othe improvised dwellings are often found in public spaces. Grinding poverty and misery coexist with great wealth. (Encyclopedia Of Homelessness).

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.


Sem Tetos

Nas últimas décadas o nível de pobreza vem crescendo com a explosão urbana no Brasil. Pessoas miseráveis e sem teto fazem parte do cenário urbano das grandes cidades brasileiras. A política populista e assistencialista atraiu e continua atraindo milhares de migrantes para Brasília, onde a miséria e a extrema riqueza convivem, lado a lado, nos mesmos espaços públicos.

Informações sobre Brasília: A construção de Brasília teve início em 1956. A Capital foi inaugurada oficialmente em 21 de abril de 1960. Hoje é a quarta maior cidade do Brasil, com mais de 2.557.000 habitantes (Censo 2008). Brasília é um Patrimônio Cultural da Humanidade, UNESCO, desde 7 de dezembro de 1987.
