Oscar Niemeyer, the renowned Brazilian architect, has been admitted to the Samaritan’s Hospital of Rio de Janeiro.

Niemeyer, who will turn 105 this December, was admitted to the same hospital for about 2 weeks in May after suffering from pneumonia.

According to The Huffington Post, Niemeyer’s doctor, Fernando Gjorup, has said that the architect is “fine” and in stable condition, although “a bit dehydrated. He entered the hospital complaining of nausea, but little else.”
