Oscar Niemeyer once said: ” We must dream, otherwise things won’t happen”.
We must consider him an inspiration, attracted to free-flowing, and sensual curves. This is the definition of his work. From him, we can only expect masterpieces because his guidance is not straight angles or straight lines, har and inflexible.
He is known for his work in reinforced concrete. Also, he gave us new ideas about how architecture should look in the 20th century.
Oscar is one of the most iconic architects in the architectural history of Brazil. He left back more than 500 projects across the world. It is crucial to mention that all the projects differ according to their location, style, and requirement. Although that is one thing that unites all of them, and that is a complex thought process. A thought process that reflects into abstract forms that create an authentic identity to all of the projects.

Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady of Aparecida – Brasilia
If we talk about iconic structures, Oscar Niemeyer is the master. The Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady of Aparecida is, for sure, one of his greatest masterpieces. The hyperboloid structure in white concrete is just speechless.

Grand Hotel Ouro Preto
The Church of São Francisco Assis – Pampulha
According to Oscar Niemeyer, the only thing that is constant in modernism is “innovation”. And once we talked about innovation, the Church of São Francisco comes up as a significant symbol of organic modern style.
