Brasilía is the capital of Brazil, built with the intention of bringing further progress and urbanization into the interior and of separating itself from Rio de Janeiro, the old coastal capital. Brasilía left behind the slums, baroque and classical architecture, and colonial legacy of Rio de Janeiro and replaced it with urban planning, new roads, and futuristic architecture, which has been recognized as a fresh start by Brazilians. However, Brasilía was designed to hold 500,000 people, but now holds approximately 3 million. It also was not designed with pedestrians in mind, so it is congested and environmentally unfriendly. Brasilía is coherent, but lacks shops, street life, markets, and a sense of day-to-day life because it was built for civil service and the government.
