Dear Docomomo friends,

It is with regret and sadness that we inform that one of the most important architects of our times, Oscar Niemeyer, died yesterday at age 104.

He has been one of the most outstanding representatives of Modern Movement architecture in Brazil and worldwide.

Many of his works are part of the Docomomo Register and they have been studied by all the International Specialist Committees. Many of us have visited his work and have been able to meet him.

We believe that Docomomo Brazil’s (Brasilia) image summarizes very well what many of us wish to express:
Obrigado Oscar.

DOCOMOMO International wishes to express its condolences to his family and friends.

Ana Tostões                      Ivan Blasi
Chair                                Secretary General
