This tour is an observation experience of the architectural evolution of Rio de Janeiro for over 100 years. Our first stop is the viewpoint on the rooftop of the "Museu de Arte do Rio" where we will talk about the history of Brazil, so we can understant how important was the city of Rio de Janeiro for the construction of the country and why Rio has such architectural variety. Then we will start our walking by the Mauá Square. This Square is one of the regions with the greatest architectural variety in the city. There, it is possible to see five architectural styles from different decades of 20th and 21th centuries. After this, we will walk towards Cinelândia, a walk of approximately 2km, visiting buildings and discovering old 18th century churches hidden behind huge modern buildings! Cinelândia is another square full of historical examples of Brazilian architecture. It holds 5 of the 10 original buildings that remain from the opening of Rio Branco's Avenue in 1905. We'll explore their facades, their details and our last stop will be the Federal Justice Cultural Center. This building preserves an original court room from the beggining of the 20th century.
I'm a grad student of History of Brazilian Arts and Architecture and a certified tour guide. I took three years of architecture but then swapped to Civil Engineering, which I graduated in 2016. Rio de Janeiro, besides being my home, is also my largest study laboratory. I like to use the tours to share with people the two subjects that I like the most to study: Architecture and the city of Rio de Janeiro.
