Today would have been Oscar Niemeyer's 105th birthday. The Pritzker-Prize winning, Brazilian master died last Thursday, December 6th, due to complications from a previous kidney condition.

Take a moment to look back on all our Niemeyer coverage, and remember the man who truly saw architecture as a higher calling. As Neimeyer once said: "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.”
