ARCHITECTURE I admire: Oscar Niemeyer

Bleeding Hand Memorial, Sao Paulo [1989]
Oscar Niemeyerwho died recently, is an an architect who made a great impression on me when I visited Brasilia when only government buildings - no embassies or housing - had been built [see Preamble of my book John Stefanidis Designs].
Senate and Chamber of Deputies, Brasilia
University of Constantine, 1969-77

  1. I've been impressed by Niemeyer's highly romanticized Modern - as Le Corbusier told him, he 'did the Baroque very well.'
    Greatly enjoy your blog and your designs open a wonderful world,
