Honestino Guimarães National Museum
Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012) designed several versions of the museum for the capital's cultural sector. The current proposal was shaped like a spherical dome with 245ft (75m) in diameter in 2002. It was inaugurated on December 15th, 2007, on the architect's birthday. Its four levels contain auditoriums, a first-floor gallery, the main exhibition space, and a mezzanine gallery. It is named after Honestino Guimarães, a university student leader killed in 1973.
