Oscar Niemeyer

Celebrated Brazilian architect considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture. Oscar Ribeiro de Almeida Niemeyer Soares Filho (1907, d. 2012, Rio de Janeiro) was best known for his design of civic buildings for Brasilia, a planned city that became Brazil's capital in 1960, as well as his collaboration with other architects on the headquarters of the United Nations in New York. He held socialist and communist views, and was an outspoken atheist. For political reasons, he fled Brazil and could only return home in 1985, after the fall of the right-wing dictatorship.
