NOTES: The city of Brasilia was planned and developed in 1956 with Lucio Costa as chief urban planner and Oscar Niemeyer as principal architect. It formally became the capital of Brazil in 1960 and is the seat of all three branches of the Brazilian government. This museum is part of the Joao Herculino Culture Complex, and is the last of the projects conceived by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, the urban planner, for the Esplanada dos Ministerios de Brasilia.
