229. Vista Aerea de la Ciudad Universitaria. Caracas, Venezuela

Dear Alexander,

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.
