Igreja de São Francisco de Assis, Pampulha, Belo Horizonte.

 

The front of the church is pictured below. This is the first major work by Brazilian renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. It brought him into direct conflict with the catholic church. Work on the back of the church (shown here) was by Brazilian artist Cândido Portinari. More info in English at the Wikipedia article:
