Architecture Puzzler #92
This Brazilian architect gave a face to the capitol city of Brasilia with the design for its cathedral, housing, and congress building. Of his work he said: "I seek beauty, I want to raise the spiritual level of architecture." Whom do I refer to?
Oscar Niemeyer. He also says: "Modern cities are monstrous, the density is absurd. I think cities should be small, like Italian cities, where men meet as brothers, share common interests. I think modern cities are a sin."
