Oscar Niemeyer




"Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer is probably best known for his public office buildings in Brasilia, as well as the UN Building in NYC. A pioneer in using reinforced concrete for aesthetic purposes, emphasizing curves and contrasting volumes with empty spaces, Niemeyer donated the design for the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Center in Asturias, Spain in gratitude for having been awarded the Prince of Asturias Award of Art in 1989. The center opened this past spring, clearly thrilling photographers for the opportunity to take some beautiful shots."
