Goodbye Oscar Niemeyer

The famous Brasilian architect recently passed away, on December 5th 2012, at the age of 104!

I started to admire his work, and write about his work for Brasilia, the new capital of Brasil, back in the ’90s. It really impressed me that the city was planned completely from scratch (an unknown concept in old Europe!) and that he gave it the shape of a plane… the ultimate visual metaphor😉
