Homage to Oscar Niemeyer

Centenário de Oscar Nyemeier - Foto Carlos Magno

Today is a sad day for Architecture.

World-famous and one of the best architects ever Oscar Niemeyer is dead today, december 5, 2012, 10 days before his 105th anniversary.

During his all life, he worked together with the best architects to build the present and the future of the modern architecture.

Icon for all of us, young architects all over the world, Oscar Niemeyer teached us to design with our perception, with our feelings, with our heart.

The curves of his designs, like, as he said, the curves of the mountains of his country, the curves of the favourite woman, will be engraved in our memory and in the shapes of our future works. No other architect designed 100 world-famous buildings.

This article just pretend to pay tribute to this great Architect, showing some images about him.

Descanse em paz, Oscar.
