Oscar Niemeyer

Countless books, articles, documentaries and dedications have been made to the master of architecture Oscar Niemeyer. Today marks the one-year anniversary of his passing, and this entire blog would be remiss if there were no mention of the man responsible for some of the most amazing structures on the planet.

I don't quite remember exactly when I learned of the name responsible for these buildings but I DO remember being aware of them for many years in my teens. Each structure is so futuristic in an inspirational manner of intrigue; they all have characteristics of past, present and future dreams.

Niemeyer was born in 1907 and lived 104 years. His structures will continue to serve as inspiration to me as a symbol of forward thinking and never settling for the status quo. For more information and images, visit this great article, or the wiki about the man himself.
