Casa Do Baile, Belo Horizonte

4.1
Part of the "Pampulha Architectural Complex" that brought architect Oscar Niemeyer international acclaim and popularity in the 1940s, Casa Do Baile was designed as a small restaurant/dance hall, built on its own artificial island. It includes a circular block from which a free-form marquee unravels, following the contour of the island. After the building’s completion, this free-form design became wildly popular in Brazilian architecture, adding to Niemeyer’s already enviable global reputation. The site is close to the Pampulha Art Museum and is a must-see for all lovers of modern architecture. Don’t leave before walking down to the nearby lagoon, where you can take photographs of this key cultural area and its important landmark.

  • The House of the Baile, one of the architectural works of Niemayer in Lagoa da Pampulha where you have a wonderful view of the lagoon and watch a stunning sunset. As for the work is without care and preservation as others in various places of the country. A pity!

  • It's very small, I expected more. It has a beautiful architecture and landscape on the outside, but there's nothing to do inside. But it's worth a quick visit.

  • The architecture is very interesting, the surroundings are very well kept and the view of the lake is very picture worthy. The cafe is a little pricey but good, but the most interesting thing is the acoustic of the room. Stand in the center of the circle and speak or sing and your voice is amplified.
  • One of the four architectural works of Oscar Nieyemer, making up the Conjunto Moderno da Pampulha (Pampulha Modern Ensemble), located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and recognized in 2016 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site under the category Patrimônio Cultural(Cultural Heritage).
