Architect
    (December 15, 1907-December 5, 2012)
    Born in Rio de Janiero, Brazil
    Chief architect overseeing the design and construction of the new capital city of Brasilla (1956-60)
    He did not graduate high school until age 21.
    Catholic authorities refused to consecrate his Church of Saint Francis of Assisi due to its unorthodox design, notably the omission of a confessional.
    Fidel Castro said 'Niemeyer and I are the last Communists on this planet.'
    One of his most recent projects is a sculpture protesting US economic sanctions against Cuba.
    Following a right-wing coup (1964), his office was pillaged and he was forced into exile.
    He was a pioneer in using reinforced concrete to give his buildings dynamic curves.
    At age 89, he designed the Niteroi Museum of Contemporary Art, which many critics consider his greatest work.
