The world lost a legend this week, with the passing of Oscar Neimeyer. He had an incredibly long career and life, he was 104 years old. He has left a legacy of amazing, sculptural and beautiful building in Brazil, and his work at the UN in New York City with Le Corbusier brought his iconic style to the United States.

His work is curvaceous and he often commented that he was inspired by the female form.  No further comment on that, other than the work is both timeless and futuristic- and the curves are  beautiful.
