In 1951, modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer designed and built his own residence, Casa das Canoas, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “My concern was designing this residence with full freedom, adapting it to the uneven terrain, without altering it, making it into curves, so as to allow the vegetation to penetrate them, without the overt separation of the straight line.” - Oscar Niemeyer
My next trip to South America, the first stop will be Brasilla! Oscar Niemeyer is one of my design heroes, imagine the luxury of designing an entire city! Such modern spaces, a perfect place for a D.W.B!
