Niemeyer Center


For my 100th blog post I thought that I would post this video of the new Neimeyer Center in Aviles, Spain designed by the still working 103 year old architect Oscar Niemeyer. Niemeyer is best known for his work on Brasilia (1956-1964) the capital of Brazil. His work has a futuristic almost utopian quality to it which I find very appealing. Watching the video, i was stuck by the perfection of these buildings and the power of the simple lines. These buildings are striking. I suspect this center will be the architect’s final project, but it is a fitting tribute to a genius in the profession.
