A tribute to Oscar Niemeyer

Recently, Oscar Niemeyer left this world at nearly 105 years old, leaving behind an immense architectural legacy, being one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture. Regardless the critics he received during his long career I have the greatest respect for his passion for architecture. His organic approach towards architectural design inspires me the most and he did it very skilfully.
