KCCT Member of Design Team for the New U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, Brazil
KCCT, as part of the Studio Gang team, is proud to announce the recent selection for the design of the new U.S. Embassy Compound in Brasilia, Brazil. The Studio Gang and KCCT team was selected from a very talented shortlist of six A/E teams that had advanced to the final round of presentations and interviews. KCCT has been working for the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations for nearly 30 years and is excited to be teamed with one of the nation’s leading design firms to establish a new vision for the U.S. presence in Brasilia. We will holistically transform and rebuild the 12-acre Embassy compound that was the first embassy established in the new city of Brasilia, an important UNESCO world heritage site planned and designed by Lucio Costa and architect Oscar Niemeyer in 1956. The site of the U.S. Embassy is prominently located at the beginning of the Avenue of Nations, adjacent to the city’s monumental axis and seat of the Brazilian government.
