Notes on the Geography of Brazil: Brasilia: Photo 22
Niemeyer designed the Cathedral of Brasilia with its own crown of thorns. Critic Ouroussoff doesn't care for it but he really goes after its neighbor. In a review of later changes in the city, he writes that "perhaps most damaging, however, was the completion last year of Mr. Niemeyer's National Museum... [whose] white dome, pierced at one end by a long ramp, rests on its concrete plaza with the grace of an army bunker."
