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.” Quotes by Oscar Niemeyer  Tribute to Oscar Niemeyer – by Lord Norman Foster Films & Architecture: “Oscar Niemeyer – Life is a Breath of Air”  The Construction of Brasilia, Photos by Marcel Gautherot  The works of Oscar Niemeyer, Photographed by Patricia Parinejad  Oscar Niemeyer's Complete Works Oscar Niemeyer, My Dear Old Friend – by Bossa Nova legend Vinicius de Moraes AD Interviews: Oscar Niemeyer Infographic: Oscar Niemeyer’s timeline Video: Niemeyer Cultural Center Niemeyer’s Sambadrome Cathedral of Brasilia by Oscar Niemeyer “Tranquilo com a vida”, listen to song composed Oscar Niemeyer View more View full description
