Notes,
Earlier today I visited the Oscar Niemeyer Musuem in Curitiba, Brazil. I noticed this interesting building yesterday and today went in for a closer look. Born in Rio in 1907 Oscar is now 104 years old and apparently still working. He is extremely famous in Brazil and around the world for his modern architecture. His use of abstract forms and curves to counter traditional straight angles and lines is evident in all his work. Some more about him is on his wikipedia page.
