Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil Brasília

Brasilia, Brazil

Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil Brasília is located in the Tancredo Neves Building, a project by Oscar Niemeyer. Starting in late 1990, part of the building was remodeled to host CCBB Brasília, aiming to insert the capital of the country in the international circuit of great events and cultural productions. With a landscape project designed by Alba Rabelo Cunha, the harmonious two-floor architectural complex rests on stills and is divided in modules; the CCBB occupies part of the main building. Inaugurated on October 12, 2000, CCBB Brasília is the third most visited cultural museum/center in Brazil and the 59th in the world, according to the ranking by the English publication The Art Newspaper (April/2017). The building has a constructed area of approximately 20,551 m2. The CCBB occupies 7,000 m2 of this total, in addition to the 23,940 m2 outdoor area (gardens and parking), with diferent spaces for various cultural attractions, such as music, theater, cinema, and exhibitons.
