Architect of the I.M. Pei team, who designed the Louvre Pyramid, visited the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court

Friday, October 06, 2017

This Friday (6), the architect George Miller visited the premises of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF). He is part of the team of I.M. Pei, famous and award-winning American architect of Chinese descent who, among other works, designed the Louvre Pyramid and the National Art Gallery in Washington DC. Miller is a partner at New York-based Pei Cobb Freed & Partners. "It was my dream, since my childhood, to get to know Brasilia and the work of Niemeyer," he said. The professional, who works in a company known for developing creative architectural solutions, highlighted the "genius" of the Brazilian architect responsible for the Supreme Court's project. Pei's other works include the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, Palazzo Lombardia in Milan, and the Luxembourg Museum of Modern Art, the latter two with projects led by Miller.

George Miller says that on the first visit to Brasilia in June of this year, he admired the Court from the outside, especially the columns of the main building, keeping his curiosity to know it from the inside. Welcomed by civil servants from the STF's Architecture Department, Miller visited the interior in detail, admired the view of the Three Powers Plaza from the Great Hall and was curious about the Court's history. "I didn't quite catch how the building was made, how the arches had been constructed," he said, when he saw the photos of the building's construction in the exhibition called "The STF and its photographic collection", installed in the Cultural Space Justice Menezes Direito.
