Last week I had the chance to visit Brasilia and could get closer to the work of Oscar Niemeyer. The city was totally impressive, especially for me as architect. I dreamed a long time of visiting this extraordinary urban project in the middle of nowhere.

This city feels like it has dropped out of any human scale. And we did our whole sight seeing tour by foot, what a mistake. The humid heat and the multiple kilometers we had to walk gives us a real hard taste, how architects super-vision can be off-base. But in detail the architectural design of the single buildings are incredibly beautiful. Especially the ones of Oscar Niemeyer. His buildings has this unique poesy, he ever talked about in interviews in his older days.
