Recently the world said goodbye to a great – Oscar Niemeyer – Brazilian architect who can be credited with much more than just assisting in the birth of modernist architecture. Oscar recently passed just shy of his 104th birthday leaving behind him a repertoire of internationally highly regarded work spanning 78 years including the architecture of the planned city Brasilia (to become Brazil’s capital city), assisting in the UN headquaters of New York City with architectural mentor Le Corbusier and courageous buildings which take pride of place in the Brazilian architectural collection.
