Brasilia's futuristic feel could be history

UNESCO warns that Brazilian capital's architectural delights in danger of falling prey to development.

    The Brazilian capital was founded in 1956, and was  built from nothing, to become a modern architectural delight.

    The structures that once gave the city its futuristic feel, however, are now in danger of becoming a thing of the past.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Brasilia.
