"Brazilian kitsch architecture displays a certains [sic] ‘naïvety' as well as features characteristic of ‘official' production, notably those hailing from modern architecture, the old avant-garde, that are now partly assimilated by the general public. This is what might be termed post-popular architecture: the appropriation of the classic emblems of modernity. Examples are ‘à la Thirties Corbu' constructions on piles carrying over-dimensioned structures; roofs with central valley gutters (derived from modern architecture) associated to the pediment, which is the element of neo-classical influence; and the systematic use of ‘alvorada' columns (from the name of the Brazilian governor's palace drawn by Oscar Niemeyer) whose shape is used without regard to the original dimensions."
