    Brazil Week // Amazing Buildings Designed By Oscar Niemeyer.

    9th July

    With his incredibly prolific portfolio in architecture, sculpture, furniture and design, the late Oscar Niemeyer truly left his mark on Brazil, and the world. Living a fruitful life until the age of 104, the Brazilian architect is considered one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture and was hailed as one of the greatest architects of his generation. In his lifetime he created more than 500 buildings, continuing to work until shortly before his death in 2012. In the sprit of Brazil week, today we celebrate some of Oscar Niemeyer’s most beautiful and iconic modernist buildings from around the world.

    29th October

    As a self-appointed ambassador for Serbia and Serbian Design, I feel it is my duty to report on any exceptional-ness I see coming out of the “old country”. Which brings us to today’s post. Terra Panonica is a cultural and tourist complex located in the sleepy village of Mokrin in north-east Serbia, in the province of Vojvodina.
