Exhibition promotes the meeting of the past and the future in architecture

The architect, urbanist and designer Paulo Sergio Niemeyer will exhibit unpublished engravings, which will contrast with engravings of his great mentor and great-grandfather Oscar Niemeyer in the exhibition NIEMEYER: The architecture where the past and the future are completed.

Inaugurated on December 15, which marks the day of the architect and anniversary of Oscar Niemeyer, the event not only portrays the work of the artist Paulo Sergio Niemeyer, but also recalls the traits and history of his great-grandfather, one of the greatest architects of the world. “We believe in Brazilian design and we want to disseminate it, so our participation reinforces this position,” says Giselle Rivkind, Director of Marketing at Breton, the company sponsoring the show.

Great-grandson of the great name of world architecture, Oscar Niemeyer, Paul always had a close relationship with his great-grandfather. From his childhood he was already running and playing among projects, sketches and chalk. There is no shortage of “elective affinities” between Oscar and Paulo Niemeyer: the understanding of which architecture is invention, the search for new forms of visual communication, the concern to harmonize full and empty spaces, election by the curves, makes his great-grandchild the heir of the curves of Niemeyer.
