Book with over 160 photographs by Erik van der Weijde of large residential blocks in Brasilia, named Superquadras. Each block, as repeating element in Lucio Costa's master plan for Brazil's new capital, was built within a distinct configuration, with an average of eleven residential buildings raised on pilotis, with a height limit of six floors.
