dc.descriptionView on entry to National Congress Complex access ramp, looking, on center axis, towards the Secretariat; In the Congresso Nacional complex (1958-1960), the shallow convex and concave domes of the Senate Chamber and House of Representatives are separated by a pair of slender, high-rise slabs behind them, housing the Secretariat; the composition forms a sculptural whole set within the bowl of the surrounding hills. Subsequently, ca. 1985-1986, Niemeyer designed and added movable brises-soleil to the curtain walling of the Secretariat buildings.
