The Palacio da Alvorada is the official house for the President of the United States of Brazil (kind of the White House in the USA). It was built in 1958, the same year when the city was built too. Brasilia was made right in the middle of the jungle.The politics decided to make a town there and it was all done in 14 months, from big and desert farms to a complete new city, the capital of a country, and so was the Palacio.

I shot this panorama during a very rainy day to get this feeling of poetic light reflecting on the floor. It is the first time the President's House has been photographed inside and outside after been completely repainted and repaired. The normal photos will go to a book and the VRs will go to a official website.
