ARCHITECTS | Oscar’s French Connection :: Photos by Ludovic Lent for L’Express + Other Niemeyer Stories

I’ve always liked Niemeyer’s French connection, and I think the French have honoured and respected the architect through the decades since he decamped there during Brazil’s long military dictatorship.

For his 103rd birthday, L’Express (what a great logo!) pulled together a nice package online to celebrate Oscar’s amazing achievement. (The interview on the eve of his 100 birthday is memorable.)

Below are the three pieces to the tribute:
