Oscar Niemeyer

Brazilian, 1907 - 2012
Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012) was a Brazilian architect who is considered one of the most important figures in modern architecture. He was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and studied architecture at the National School of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro.
Niemeyer's work is characterized by its organic shapes, curves, and the use of reinforced concrete. He designed many buildings in Brazil, including the National Congress building in Brasília, which is considered one of his most important works. Other notable projects include the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói, Brazil, and the headquarters of the French Communist Party in Paris, France.
Niemeyer's designs often combined modernist principles with a sensuality and fluidity that was unique to his style. His work was also influenced by the landscape and culture of Brazil, and he often incorporated elements of nature and Brazilian folk art into his designs.
Niemeyer was awarded numerous honors during his lifetime, including the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1988, which is considered the highest honor in the field of architecture. His work continues to inspire architects and designers worldwide, and many of his buildings are now considered icons of modern architecture.
