Levente Szabo shared a beautiful illustration project celebrating the great Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. With a set of colorful and super stylish illustrations Levent captured the modernist work of Oscar with extreme accuracy.

Oscar Niemeyer was a Brazilian architect, considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture. He was best known for his design of civic buildings for Brasília, 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.

His exploration of the aesthetic possibilities of reinforced concrete was highly influential in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

“Humanity needs dreams to endure misery, even if just for an instant.”
— Oscar Niemeyer

This project is dedicated to his architectural work.
