Note

Designed by Oscar Niemeyer the Niteroi is 16 meters high; its cupola has a diameter of 50 metres with three floors. The museum projects itself over Boa Viagem reflecting pool that surrounds the cylindrical base “like a flower,” in the words of Niemeyer. The saucer-shaped modernist structure, which has been likened to a UFO, is set on a cliffside, at the bottom of which is a beach.
