Urban Picture

This is a picture of Vila Amaury, a temporary village of 16,000 people in Brasilia - Brazil. Most of those people were construction workers who built public buildings in the city, including some ministries and the National Congress, the tall building you see in the picture. (ht Telmo Ribeiro)

The village was later covered by the water when the Paranoá River was dammed to create an artificial lake.
