Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012)
Niemeyer lived until he was 104 years old. News of his death seems to have ‘shocked’ many—meaning,
once you get to 100, you may as well live forever. The beauty is, of course, that in a way he will. Because that’s what architecture of his sort wanted to do: transcend time and history and in effect make its own time force field around it.
