ArchDaily would like to wish Oscar Niemeyer a Happy 103rd Birthday today.  In 1988, at age 81, Niemeyer was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, together with American architect Gordon Bunshaft. Setting the pace for us all, Niemeyer continues to practice architect from his office in Rio de Janeiro, with ongoing projects in Brazil and Spain.  He even recently composed the song Tranquilo com a Vida, download and listen here. Richard Meier and Oscar Niemeyer met in October and here are some photos that Richard Meier & Partners shared with ArchDaily.  We will soon be featuring an interview with Richard Meier, so be sure to keep a look out. Follow the break for Richard Meier and Oscar Niemeyer.
