Oscar Niemeyer

Brazilian architect Oscar Ribeiro de Almeida Niemeyer Soares Filho is one of the most important names in international modern architecture. His architectual designs are  known to be spacious and exposed, mixing volumes and empty space to create unconventional patterns.

maybe the most famous public buildings he designed can be found in the city of Brasília. not many know that he also designed The United Nations Headquarters in New York City.

work of this charismatic man is genious, so light and so solid at the same time. Niemeyer is now 102 years old and when i first saw his picture, i could  just feel a great creative mind in him.
