Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012): In my opinion, architecture is invention. And under this prism is how I do my projects, always searching for beautiful, expressive, different and surprising solutions. The architect is a citizen just like any other, always open to serve any kind of program presented to him, be constantly aware of society’s need to change, to foster a fair and solidary world.
