Sao Francisco Church by Oscar Niemeyer architect
Niemeyer was named chief designer for a group of buildings at Pampulha, a residential suburb near Belo Horizonte. He designed a casino, restaurant, yacht club, and, most important, the church of S. Francisco (executed 1942-1943). The church is a series of concrete parabolic curves, and two of the walls are downward extensions of the roof. Inside of the church, you can find a beautiful and polemic mural painted by Candido Portinari.
