Located at 7 Boulevard Jourdan, the House of Brazil, or Pavilion of Brazil, is one of twenty-three national houses of the International University City of Paris. Consecrated in Brazil, as its name suggests, it was founded in the late 1950s to welcome students, professors and Brazilian researchers coming to France for research. It also houses artists in advanced training.
Listed as a Historic Monument, it is the work of two world-famous architects, Lucio Costa and Le Corbusier. In line with the modern movement, the building unveils a concrete rough formwork and many right angles. Composed of five floors, it is like a residential bar with loggias in multiple colors.
Completely restored in 2000, the Maison du Brésil also unveils a theater, an exhibition hall, a library of books in French and Portuguese, as well as a meeting room.
