This is where the citizens of Brasilia live. The "super quadras" were planned to take pretty well the entire population - which was to be no more than 800,000 - it is now 2,000,0000, with satellite cities having sprung up outside the Federal District. The super quadras occupy the north/south arc of the city and the buildings were originally designed to be no more than six floors - and many only four. Planned on socialist principles, the area was supposed to be classless, so workers and managers lived in the same areas. As the demand for apartments here has increased, many of the workers have sold out and moved to the satellite cities. There is lots of greenery, as you see, with regular positioning of schools, recreation areas, churches, shopping areas, and so on. Very pleasant places to live.
