I'm an AJ subscriber - not an architect but a development surveyor.

I wasn't a great fan of the redesign in 2005 but I would very much like to congratulate you on your Alvorada Palace Building Study (AJ 22.03.07).

I went on a tour of Brazil last year. I survived Sao Paulo and had my hotel room broken into in Brasília, but it was well worth it to see this Niemeyer masterpiece. Well done on a great piece of writing. Are they refurbishing any other bits of Brasília or is it all too politically embarrassing? President Lula may be the people's man, but he's certainly not universally hailed as Brazil's saviour. And well, Brazil is Brazil!

Niteroi was closed for refurbishment when I was there - perhaps another candidate for a Building Study?
