EUROPALIA BRESIL. Sergio Bernardes • Expo'58 - Brazilian Pavilion  

Temporary mini-exhibition / temporary exhibition Sphere (level 1)
>>> 03.10.2011 - Spring 2013

In October 2011, the Atomium will for the first time in its history participate in Europalia. This year, Brazil is in the spotlight.


The Atomium takes this opportunity to propose the modern Brazilian architecture (from 1930 to 1960). This small exhibition introduces you to an exuberant, humanist and utopian architectural style.

The central figure is Sérgio Bernardes. The model of the Brazilian pavilion, which was designed by him, for Expo 58, can be (re)discovered. An architectural and technical marvel.
