When I say that I was born in Brazil, 99,9% of the time, people answer me back: oh…Rio, Carnival, can you dance Samba? Every stereotype has a basis of truth, I mean, the natural curves of Rio are inspiring, Brazilian people move themselves in a special rhythm, and only Brazilians can dance Samba….unfortunately my European blood is a handicap in this task.
Oscar Niemeyer translated that Brazilian soul into architecture. And when he was 103 years old, he designed his first jewelry collection for H.Stern . So, it’s never too late to start a new project, guys!
In his memory, he died on the 5th of December, some days before completing 105 years, enjoy his last work, and as we do in Brazil, let’s pray one Hail Mary for him:
