The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer died today at the age of 104 years. He was known for his modern and curvy style and for being the architect who gave Brasilia its flair. Niemeyer was an architectural genius if I may say so myself !
In Niemeyer’s words: “It is important that the architect think not only of architecture but of how architecture can solve the problems of the world. The architect’s role is to fight for a better world, where he can produce an architecture that serves everyone and not just a group of privileged people.”
