Books & Books and the Centro Cultural Brasil-USA da Florida (Brazil-USA Cultural Center/CCBU) continue the yearlong cultural exploration of Brazil.

Our series called CULTURAL CUP 2.0 will focus on the culture, traditions, arts, music and gastronomy of the twelve Host Cities of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the exciting worldwide soccer tournament that will happen in Brazil next year.

Our second stop will be BRASILIA, Brazil’s capital, an unique city, considered one of the 20th century’s architectural marvels. It was added in 1987 to the Unesco list of World Heritage sites as a major example of 20th century’s modern movement in architecture and urban planning.

Professor Jean-François Lejeune, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of Miami School of Architecture and author of the book "Cruelty and Utopia: Cities and Landscapes of Latin America" (Princeton Architecture Press) will guide us in a review of the innovative urban plan created by Lucio Costa and the impressive buildings and monuments designed by Oscar Niemeyer.

Following Prof. Lejeune's presentation, Maria Elisa Barreto, a close family friend of President Juscelino Kubitschek, the creator of Brasilia, will share with us her unique perspective as a witness of the building of the new capital.

Join us at an informal reception following the presentation at Books & Books patio.

The Cultural Cup 2.0 BRASILIA is sponsored by The Brickellian and Ms. Stella Holmes, art curator, museum trustee and producer of the documentary "West Encounters East".


About the Sponsor of Cultural Cup 2.0:
The Brickellian / Ms. Stella Holmes
Brickellian
On April 10, at the next Cultural Cup 2.0: São Paulo, Ms. Holmes will give a presentation about her documentary 'West Encounters East'. This film, soon to debut on public television, explores the themes of immigration, alienation and assimilation through the works of Japanese Brazilian artists, descendants of a century-old diaspora that has given Sao Paulo the largest Japanese population outside Japan. The concept was developed by Ms. Holmes, an art historian ad museum trustee who was inspired by the works of these bicultural artists to embark upon a personal journey of discovery.”
