Surrounded by symbolism, like any other religious building, the Brasilia Cathedral (its official name is the Cathedral Metropolitana) is the most prominent feature of the capital, Nosa Senora. It is located in a secondary area of the master plan, and unlike the colonial era, when the religious structures in the Brazilian cities held strategic positions, the Catholic Church no longer represented one of the central powers in Brazil.
Although the architect claims to be an atheist, the space expresses religious sentiments and is at once spectacular and simple. It is strengthened by access to surfing architecture. A dark tunnel takes the visitor inland with a circular diameter of 70 m. The visitor walks a few meters in the direction of the light, with the student expanding at a lower height and darkness relative to the outside level. It was as if they were entering, symbolically seeking spirituality – and when they finally reached the Cathedral, they were bathed in concrete and glass spheres. The light opens the visitor’s eye to an amazing space. Symbolically, the roof has 16 pieces of the para-parabolic section, which can be called the idea of the crown of thorns, leaving space between the glass-filled columns. The cathedral had not been completed for many years due to the difficulty of sealing the glass sheets, and still, dozens of architectural publications still show the image of the cover structure.
Niemeyer was called in 1987 to rebuild the Cathedral. At the time, the exposed concrete structure was painted white, and fiberglass windows made of fiberglass, designed by plastic artist Marion Peretti, who supported several of the architect’s projects, were mounted under the spherical glass panes. In addition, in the Congolese city council of the province of Minas Gerris, the prophets of the Brazilian sculptor Alejadenho are commemorated by four bronze statues of the four evangelists and a four-meter-tall statue of Alfredo Cesciati. There are angels in the cathedral, and it hangs under the dome. There are angels by the Brazilian artist de Cavalcanti (created by Via Sakura) and Athos Balcio (author of Baptized Polished Tiles). Adjacent to the main building sides structures. There is an oval-shaped baptismal font and a bell tower donated by the Spanish government.
