    Oscar Niemeyer's Brazil.

Oscar Niemeyer’s work reshaped Brazil over more than half a century, often in curvilinear form. While the collection presented here is by no means comprehensive, ARCHITECT has collected a small sampling of the broad catalog of his buildings, seen through the lenses of Esto’s photographers. Although these projects range in scale, program, and date of completion, Niemeyer’s commitment to exploring the sculptural properties of concrete through his architecture is evident throughout his career. 


Read ARCHITECT’s full remembrance of Oscar Niemeyer here.
