The multimodal transport hub of Brasilia marks the city’s hotspot as it is where the grand urban monuments meet the daily life of its citizens. It is in this knot that we see a convergence of the city and its natural surroundings, the grandiose and the familiar, something that Brasilia does not offer elsewhere. The hub is a surprise, an accident, density and action. It belongs entirely to its inhabitants. In this continuous come and go, there are those people who only pass through, those who beg for charity, those who work. All, however, are convinced that they are in the best of all booths to admire the spectacle of urban life.
The Invisible City is a place of mobility and life – of all population types.
