Ted Travels the World Architectural Capital
It appears I may have a “super power” (lol). A couple of months ago I wrote about the impressive architecture of Rio de Janeiro, and now it seems I’m not the only one talking about it. UNESCO and the International Union of Architects (IUA) have named Rio the “World Capital of Architecture” to preserve the architectural heritage in the urban context.
The award has been appointed for year 2020, to Rio de Janeiro the first City to have this great honour. To support this great effort, Rio de Janeiro will also host the triennial World Congress of Architects in the same year, so architect clients this will be of interest to them!
Together with its colonial history and modern futuristic buildings, Rio is set around Guanabara Bay, surrounded by perfect beaches, the rain forest of Tijuca Rainforest, the famous Sugar loaf and Corcovado mountains. Rio offers travellers a great balance of urban enjoyment.
Clients wanting to extend their trip and keep in awe with all that Brazil has to offer, they can travel north towards Ouro Preto and Congonhas or south to the colonial village of Parati. Or take a flight to Brasilia or Salvador to see some of the famous buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer.
