Many of his designs began with a quick sketch that embodied his love of the curve — from Einstein’s universe, to the sinewy white beach that he gazed at nearly every day, to the voluptuous women he so loved to watch walking along that beach.
These women, he often said, were his inspiration.
“Curves are the essence of my work because they are the essence of Brazil, pure and simple,” Niemeyer told the Washington Post in 2002. “I am a Brazilian before I am an architect. I cannot separate the two.”
A passionate man, he lived in protest of the right angle “and buildings designed with the ruler and the square.

Philip Johnson was a museum director, writer, and, most notably, an architect known for his unconventional designs.The Philip Johnson Glass House was completed in 1949. Inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House (Plano, IL, 1951), its exterior walls are of glass with no interior walls, a radical departure from houses of the time. The Glass House or Johnson house, built in New Canaan, Connecticut, was designed by Philip Johnson as his own residence and is a masterpiece in the use of glass. Philip Johnson used his house as a viewing platform to look out at the landscape.
In addition to my passion with CG Architectural Visualization, I am a license architect in Argentina since 2000. I love using the 3d tools in the design process. The 3D model allows me to enhance my designs. It gives me the ability to modify and see different options, move around the space or see it with different materials quickly and easily.
I designed this house two years ago. Recently the owner asked me to design an additional garage and pool house.
This house consists in two distinct volumes. One with the private quarters for the family and the second one with a large and open great room, the dining area, the kitchen and a studio loft (used for arts and crafts) overlooking the great room. I chose to rotate this last volume looking for the best orientation. In the joint of these two wings you will find the entry of the house and on the opposite side the stairs that connect the two floors. The kitchen opens up to the dining area with a breakfast bar that allows the person who is cooking to be part of what is happening in the great room.
Residential projects are always especially pleasurable for me. It gives me the opportunity to be creative in designing beautiful spaces that incorporate the client’s vision and the site’s specific characteristics.
For this house I did 3 different exterior options. The first one (above) and the second one in a contemporary style. Option three, in a typical Argentinean “Campo” style that was requested by the client.
