229. Vista Aerea de la Ciudad Universitaria. Caracas, Venezuela
The unquestionable reference of this magnificent covered plaza designed by Villanueva, is Le Corbusier's lobby in the Palace of the Soviets project of 1931. This plaza works as a lobby for the theater and the rectory and it is decorated with art works by Bloc, Calder, Pevsner etc. It has been an inspiration for many architects, including Alvaro Siza when designing the Portugal Pavilion for the Expo 98.
