Sambadrome Marquês de Sapucaí

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1983)

Talk about a project that could truly be called the soul of a country—this massive structure in Rio hosts the annual parade during Carnival and can hold 70,000 revelers. It includes the aptly titled Apotheosis Square, where bleachers are spaced out to create an open space for performances. Photo by Leandro Neumann Ciuffo.  Photo 9 of 10 in Design Icon: Oscar Niemeyer
