Description

Book with photographs by Erik van der Weijde of large residential blocks in Brasilia, named ‘Superquadras’. Each block, as a repeating element in Lucio Costa’s master plan for Brazil’s new capital, was built within a distinct configuration, with an average of eleven residential buildings raised on pilotis, with a height limit of six floors. Besides 30 of these residential blocks in Brasilia, Van der Weijde also visited a residential complex in Rio de Janeiro, designed by Costa in 1948, which is considered to be a forerunner of the Superquadras .
