Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer, passed away last week at the age of 104. His curvaceous and eloquent forms gave rise to Brasilia’s modernist architecture. Niemeyer has only one residential structure in the US which is located in Santa Monica, California. Although this home lacks some of the curve appeal that he is famous for it’s modernist lines are classic Neimeyer and are part of the legacy he leaves behind. The pictures of the Santa Monica Home shown here were originally published in the May 2005 issue of Architectural Digest.
