Contemporary Art Museum: Niteroi, Rio, Brazil
Oscar Niemeyer is undoubtedly Brazil's most influential modern architect. I was only able to see a small sampling of his work, but was blown away by the Contemporary Art Museum in Niteroi (outside of Rio). This Jetson's fabulous structure looks like progressive 50's Modern, but was actually completed in 1996. Especially genius is how the alien structure harmonizes with surrounding nature. Check out the rest of the pics to see what I'm talking about.
