Architecture+Design Film Festival: Oscar Niemeyer-Life is a Breath of Air

Sun, Apr 17 / 4 pm
Directed by Fabiano Maciel
2010, Brazil, 90 min
Portuguese w/ English subtitles

Oscar Niemeyer (1907 – 2012) was an extremely influential figure in the course of modern architecture, celebrating its potential as a liberating symbol expressing political and artistic aspiration. One of the lead architects responsible for the United Nations Headquarters in NYC (1947-52), Niemeyer is best-known for his curvaceous civic buildings in Brasilia (ca1950-60), the capital city of Brazil, which continues to inspire architects around the world. Interestingly, his Brazilian National Congress complex, with its paired towers framed by saucer like council chambers, resonates closely with Toronto’s New City Hall, designed and built roughly the same time.
