Cathedral Of Brasilia Brazil

The Catedral Metropolitana Nossa Senhora Aparecida is a hyperboloid design with 16 concrete columns squeezing toward the center and then flaying out into the sky. The design recalls hands reaching up toward heaven, with a circular movement that recalls the eternity of ancient designs. Unlike previous such buildings, the concrete structure is filled with a ceiling of pure glass. The floor curves up to reach the glass at a threshhold above eye level.
