Oscar Niemeyer died yesterday at the age of 104. From what I understand he worked almost to the last, as passionate about architecture as he was as a young man. I have had the opportunity to visit a few of his many buildings (sketches from those travels below), and they are all very different but all very accessible. He and those that worked with him had a dedication to the user of their architecture, and you truly do move, explore, and touch his buildings. I have tried to learn from the spirit he imbued those spaces with, and hope to catch some of his whimsy some day. Goodbye Oscar, you will be missed.
