Oscar Niemeyer, 1907-2012. A Life In Architecture

Oscar Niemeyer, the last architect of his kind and of an entire architectural period, has died. He passed away yesterday in Rio de Janeiro, just ten days shy of his 105th birthday. Niemeyer had been hospitalized multiple times this year, most recently in October, for various complications, yet each time resurfaced with his doctors’ proclamations that he was healthy and recovering well. He leaves behind a body of work that is unmatched in quality and sheer prolificness.
