Top 10: Sexy Brazilian Architecture

It’s Carnival time! Sexy sambas, caipirinhas, glittery costumes: Brazil knows how to throw a party. So it makes sense that the country is full of some of the most playful — and the most sizzling — architecture in the world. In honor of the festivities in Rio, which begin this Saturday, we’ve compiled some of our favorite Brazilian buildings, from Oscar Niemeyer’s sci-fi structures to Ruy Ohtake’s truly “unique” hotel.
