Goodbye Niemeyer

Por Sara Navarro

El miércoles fallecía el arquitecto brasileño Oscar Niemeyer a los 104 años de edad.

Hoy en el blog le hacemos nuestro particular homenaje a un hombre cuya forma de vida era la búsqueda de la innovación y la belleza.

“Las personas tienen que soñar, sino las cosas simplemente no suceden”

“Hago solamente aquello por lo que me siento atraído, con la mayor
libertad, convencido de que la arquitectura es, antes que nada,
invención.”

“No es el ángulo recto que me atrae. Ni la recta, dura, inflexible, creada por el hombre. Lo que me atrae es la curva libre y sensual. La curva que encuentro en las montañas de mi país. En el curso sinuoso de sus ríos, en las olas del mar, las nubes del cielo, el cuerpo de la mujer preferida. De durves está hecho todo el universo. El universo curvo de Einstein”

Oscar Niemeyer, Brazil’s Modernist Icon, died on past Wednesday, at the age of 104.

This is our personal tribute to a man whose way of life was the search of the innovation and beauty.

“People have to dream, but rather things simply do not happen”

“I had some good opportunities. I was lucky to have had the chance to do things differently. Architecture is about surprise. ”

“It is not the right angle that attracts me.

nor the straight line, tough, inflexible,

created by man.

what attracts me is the free, sensual curve.

the curve I find in the mountains of my country,

in the sinuous course of its rivers,

in the waves of the sea,

in the clouds of the sky,

in the body of the favourite woman.

Of curves is made all the universe.”
