Broad avenues are one of the city's main features, and together with public buildings they encircle a number of neighborhoods known as "supercuadras". As the name implies, these neighborhoods consist of large blocks of buildings.
At the central part of the complex, the Praça dos Três Poderes (Square of the Three Branches) is located, where the Palácio do Planalto, seat of the Executive branch, the Congresso Nacional (National Congress), seat of the Legislative Branch; and, finally, the Palácio da Justiça ("Palace of Justice"), seat of the Supreme Federal Court are found.
The cockpit of the airplane is taken by the political center of Brazil; the Three Branches Square occupies the center of the cockpit and a broad avenue known as the Esplanada dos Ministérios (Ministries Esplanade) constitute the fuselage.
The rear of the imaginary plane is made up of a block of buildings from the local administration of which the Palacio Buriti, seat of the Federal District, is one of the main ones.
The plane's wings are made up of the "supercuadras" ("super blocks"), which comprise eleven residential buildings with 6 floors each, covering an area of 90,000 square meters. The city's Pilot Plan is 13 kilometers long.
