Architect designer of Brasilia dies at the age of 104

Oscar Niemeyer died today at 104 years of age.RIP
He was the architect responsible for the futuristic design of Brazils Capital. Brasilia.

The curiosity is that he used a lot of curves to create very interesting buldings.

Here are some images

National Congress of Brazil



Cathedral of Brasilia

RIP Oscar. One of the biggest influences in the world of architecture. He will be sorely missed.

RIP. I'll ask my mom if she knows him.

Interesting designs. Not my style but very interesting. I actually quite like the Congress one.

Now please compare his work to this:




This:




Or this:




The building of the French Communist Party is also Niemeyer's. Of course, it's ugly as hell:




The UN Building in New-York is a partnership between Niemeyer and the infamous Le Corbusier, on a land purchased by the Rockefeller's.



If that's beautiful, I might be turned into a pink elephant.
