The Freedom of the Press Monument is a gesture in glass. Crystal clear, solid, but as delicate as freedom itself.
It represents a perennial fight and reflects the culture of our people, based on common sense.
Comes from there this translucent, dynamic shape Which tears the space in two moments:
One for advancing in the facts, in the truth, And another, free to expose itself and speak loud at the world.
That is how a spot on the federal capital emerges In order to shelter the International Press Center But, mostly, it is introduced, The home for the symbol of all journalists.
The Monument is basically composed of two elements:
The first of a box with translucent structural glass panels supported by tie rods and fasteners metal trusses that form the external image of the building.
The underground is surrounded by concrete walls which are located facilities for multimedia projections, meetings, exhibitions and ceremonies.
