Brasilia, founded on April 21, 1960 specifically to serve as the capital of Brazil, was planned by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer to move the capital to a more central location from Rio de Janeiro. It is similar to Washington, D.C. and Canberra that it is part of a federal district as opposed to a municipality.
