Farewell to a Visionary: Oscar Niemeyer's Legacy.

On this day, the world of architecture lost one of its most visionary figures, Oscar Niemeyer. At the remarkable age of 104, Niemeyer left behind a legacy of innovation and creativity that reshaped not just the skylines but the very essence of architectural thinking in the 20th century.

Best known for his role in designing the futuristic city of Brasília, Niemeyer's work was characterized by bold, sweeping curves and a distinct flair for the sculptural. His designs were more than buildings; they were embodiments of a bold, optimistic modernism, breaking away from traditional forms and embracing a language of abstraction and innovation.
