Loads of transportation here. First, the obvious: this is the very characteristic of the public transport system of Curitiba, the Tube Station. It´s a tube of glass, where the passengers come in, pay the ticket and wait for the bus protected from the intemperies (Curitiba is known as one of the worst weathers in Brazil). Still visible is the system that allows elderly people or on wheelchairs to board in and out, but used also by babies in carts. Then we have a transportation through time, with a Beetle - which was still in production here in Brazil until maybe 1996 - , a still vastly used old car in a modern city. And there is The Eye, as we call the most visible part of the Oscar Niemeyer Museum - where we can be transported by artists to new experiences that otherwise we wouldn´t.
