Summary In 2007 award winning architect, Oscar Niemeyer turned 100. The Brazilian born architect was a pioneer in exploring the possibilities of reinforced concrete solely for its aesthetic impact. This visually stunning program reflects, through narration by Niemeyer himself, on his fascination for creating buildings both spacious and exposed and his ability to create contemporary unconventional patterns. Following his life's work and his inspiration to pursue a career in architecture this revealing program follows some of Niemeyer's most famous works, from the Ministry of Education and Public Health building in Rio to the sensual curves of the headquarters of the United Nations in New York
