8 Old Modern Buildings To Commemorate Oscar Niemeyer

BLOG, Brazil   /  

Our first encounter with the work of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer – who today passed away exactly one year ago – took place in Curitiba, Brazil. Here we visited the Niemeyer Museum, also called Niemeyer’s Eye. This visit would be the beginning of a search for more of the architect’s work throughout Brazil.

Below you’ll find eight of his projects we ‘discovered’ during our quest.
