Brazil, Curitiba, Museo Oscar Niemeyer

Oscar Niemeyer Museum Curitiba Brazil

The complex consists of two buildings, installed in an area of 35 thousand square meters, and is a very good example of architecture allied with art. The first building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1967, faithful to the style of the time, and conceived as an educational institute. It was remodelled and adapted to function as a museum, for which Niemeyer designed the annex, reminiscent of an eye, imprinting it with a new characteristic identity.The museum features a lot of Niemeyer's signature elements: bold geometric forms, sculptural curved volumes placed prominently to contrast with rectangular volumes, sinuous ramps for pedestrians, large areas of white painted concrete, and areas with vivid murals or paintings.
