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

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

RIP. :sad: 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:

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. :wavey:
