Normal Art Deco no Rio de Janeiro
artdecorj Detalhe da varanda do Edifício Guahy, Copacabana
Detail of the balcony of Guahy building, Copacabana

Construído em 1932, essa jóia do Art Deco carioca projetada por Ricardo Buffa passou anos abandonado e quase foi demolido. Em 1990 foi tombado e, nessa mesma década, passou por uma restauração e seus apartamentos foram novamente ocupados por moradores. O jogo geométrico de linhas horizontais e verticais, suas varandas em zigue-zague e sua entrada monumental (que remetem a um cocar indígena) são a marca deste prédio tão único.

Built in 1932, this Art Deco jewel designed by Ricardo Buffa was completely abandoned for many years and it was nearly demolished. In 1990 it finally became a heritage listed building, it was then restored to its original beauty and had its apartments again occupied by residents. Its vertical and horizontal lines on the faced, the pointed balconies with matching, angled metal work as well as its monumental doorway (that resembles an indigenous feathered headpiece) are some of the unique features of this Art Deco building.

Normal Art Deco no Rio de Janeiro
artdecorj Estação Central do Brasil
Central do Brazil train station

POR :::: Construída entre 1938 e 1943 (em substituição ao prédio anterior, de 1870), a Estação Central do Brasil teve seu projeto assisnado pelo engenheiro brasileiro Roberto Magno de Carvalho e pelo arquiteto Húngaro Géza Heller. O conjunto arquitetônico é um dos maiores exemplos da vertente Aerodinâmica (também conhecido como "Streamline") do estilo Art Deco no Rio. O enorme relógio no alto da torre de 135 metros de altura (que pode ser visto por vários pontos da cidade) era conhecido como "o Big Ben dos Trópicos" e é ainda maior do que o famoso relógio da capital britânica.
ENG :::: Built between 1938 and 1943 (to replace the old building, dated from 1870), the Central do Brasil station was designed by the Brazilian engineer Roberto Magno de Carvalho and by the Hungarian architect Géza Heller. The complex is one of the biggest examples of the Art Deco Streamline style in Rio de Janeiro. The huge clock tower is 135 metres high (it can be seen from many different locations around the city) and it was popularly known as the "Tropical Big Ben", the clock itself being even bigger than the famous clock from London.
