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.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Brasilia.
