In 1947 Niemeyer represented Brazil in the planning of the United Nations buildings in New York City.
When in 1956 Kubitschek was chosen president of Brazil, he asked Niemeyer to create the new capital city of Brasília. Niemeyer agreed to create the federal government buildings however recommended a national competition for the master strategy, a competitors subsequently won by his coach, Lúcio Costa. Among the Brasília structures designed by Niemeyer are the President's Gustavo Capanema Palace, the Brasília Palace Hotel, the Ministry of Justice building, the governmental chapel, and the cathedral.





Oscar Niemeyer, completely Oscar Niemeyer Soares Filho, (born December 15, 1907, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-- died December 5, 2012, Rio de Janeiro), Brazilian designer, an early exponent of modern architecture in Latin America, particularly noted for his work on Brasília, the new capital of Brazil.
Niemeyer studied architecture at the National School of Fine Arts, Rio de Janeiro. Niemeyer also worked with Costa on the strategies for the Brazilian Pavilion at the New York World's Fair of 1939-- 40.
Niemeyer's first solo project was the prepare for a complex within Pampulha, a new suburb of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Commissioned in 1941 by Juscelino Kubitschek de Oliveira, then mayor of Belo Horizonte, the scheme included a church, casino, dance hall, dining establishment, yacht club, golf club, and the mayor's weekend retreat, all located around a synthetic lake. The complex's structures are significant for their free-flowing kinds. One author explained the facade of the church as resembling "the trajectory of a bouncing ball." In 1947 Niemeyer represented Brazil in the preparation of the United Nations structures in New York City.
When in 1956 Kubitschek was elected president of Brazil, he asked Niemeyer to create the new capital city of Brasília. Niemeyer consented to develop the government structures however suggested a national competition for the master strategy, a competition consequently won by his coach, Lúcio Costa. Niemeyer acted as primary designer for NOVA-CAP, the government building authority in Brasília, from 1956 to 1961. Among the Brasília buildings created by Niemeyer are the President's Palace, the Brasília Palace Hotel, the Ministry of Justice structure, the presidential chapel, and the cathedral. In 1961 Niemeyer returned to personal practice and for a time resided in Paris and Israel. In 1966 he designed a city location in Grasse, near Nice, France, and a structure for the French Communist Party in Paris. From 1968 he lectured at the University of Rio de Janeiro.
Niemeyer's other architectural projects consist of the Ministry of Defense structure in Brasília in 1968 and Constantine University (now Mentouri University) in Constantine, Algeria, in 1969. He altered the shape of the outside arches on the Ministry of Justice building and changed the windows of the cathedral with stained-glass panels. He continued to create brand-new buildings, consisting of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói, Brazil, which opened in 1996.
Niemeyer was the recipient of many other global awards, including the Lenin Peace Prize in 1963, the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1988 (cowinner with Gordon Bunshaft), and the Japan Art Association's Praemium Imperiale prize for architecture in 2004. The Oscar Niemeyer Foundation, devoted to architectural preservation and research, was founded in 1988, and a brand-new head office developed by Niemeyer opened in Niterói in 2010.
