Oscar Niemeyer hits 100
December 15, 2007
One of the greatest protagonists of twentieth-century architecture, Oscar Niemeyer is today one hundred years old. The Brazilian architect was born in Rio de Janeiro on December 15, 1907, and still continues a career that has made him a leading figure in international architecture.
Niemeyer is considered one of the first to experiment new architectural concepts, developing a fluid sculptural style and using reinforced concrete to create sensational structures that reflect the natural sinuous curves of the mountains, the beaches and the bay of Rio de Janeiro. He has designed great projects like his numerous public buildings in Brasilia. In Italy, Niemeyer is famous for designing the Mondadori headquarters in Segrate, which was opened in 1975.
The president of Brazil, Lula, has paid tribute to the man and the great architect and honoured him by visiting him today, the day of his hundredth birthday.
