OSCAR NIEMEYER - BRAZILIAN ARCHICTURE





Museo Oscar Niemeyer, by Oscar Niemeyer, at Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil, 2002.



Auditório Ibirapuera - São Paulo - Brazil


Oscar Niemeyer's sculpture at the of the"Sambódromo" - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil


Brasília - Brazil




Oscar Niemeyer´s Church of Saint Fracis of Assisi in Belo Horizonte. Brazil.


One of the signature buildings in Brasilia. This view shows
the upturned bowl of the deputy chamber with the Congress's
office towers in the background.


Lining the Mall in Brasilia are two rows of identical glass
boxes which house government ministry offices. I was there in
January when everyone was on vacation. The place was empty and
deserted.


The Cathedral of Brasília
The nave of the Cathedral is underground. One enters through a
tunnel. What is visible here is just the roof.


The Cathedral's Belltower


Cathedral, Interior

The blue and green stained glass windows make the cathedral
interior feel warm and tropical, as if I were still back on
the beach in Rio. There are too many windows, I think. The
interior is too bright and lacks the solemnity of a Cathedral.


Dom Bosco Church

The Dom Bosco chapel is in the residential section of town. It's
just a simple rectangle with the most amazing walls of stained
glass, as you can see. The colors are really this vivid.


Senate Chamber
One weird thing about the interior of the Congress is that
nearly every surface is carpeted. This give the whole place
a hushed, muted quality and not the clacking, echoing spaces
typical of public buildings.


Funky Furniture in Congress's Lobby
Oscar Niemeyer designed down to little details like the over-
sized leather furniture and white shag carpet in the lobby.
Niemeyer is still alive (as of June 2001) and must be consulted
on any small changes to his creation, fashion be damned.


Tunnel Passageway in Congress Building
Connecting many government buildings in Brasila are these
concrete tubes which sometimes are buried and sometimes fly
through the air like freeway overpasses. Were it not for the
busts and the ever-present carpet I might have thought myself
on the subway.


Random Hospital with "Crazy" Modern Design
Clever, modern architecture is not limited to the main buildings
in Brasilia. All over one can find examples of design run amok
as in this Hospital.

Contemporary Art Museum, Niteroi - Brazil


Oscar Niemeyer is still alive and kicking and churning out buildings.
One might have thought this space-age style went out with the Jetsons.
In fact this building was completed in 1996!
Niteroi is to Rio what Oakland is to San Francisco, a poorer,
unfabulous cousin across the bay. This museum has quickly become
the city's icon, appearing on bus and ferry logos. If you're in
Rio and are adventurous enough to make it off the beach, take a quick
and cheap ferry ride across to see this real lollipop of a building.

I dont like his work, even though he is one of the icons of modernism and reinforced concrete. He was born in 1907 and is still alive, 99 years old.

you forgot about Copan



he was also one of the main architects of the UN headquarters in New York, along with Le Corbusier.

Trully very nice, Kalipso! I like very much Niemeyer's style.

But let me make a little correction: the project of the JK Bridge does not belong to Oscar Niemeyer. The name of the architect is Alexandre Chan.

I always loved the Niemeyer-buildings. One of the few architects who can build timeless. Hes building a swimming hall in Potsdam (near Berlin) right now.
I hope he will live still long.

Very inspiring architecture he made... also I advise every architect / student / fan to read some of his interviews... he kinda explains his projects very well, and very simple..how he compares the female body with buildings is very fascinating!
