Project Description

FROM THE OSCAR NIEMEYER FOUNDATION:

Designed by Niemeyer in 1951 as his family home, Casa Das Canoas is considered one of the most significant examples of modern Brazilian architecture. The dwelling is notoriously recognized by history experts and art critics as a synthesis of modern architecture and the free authorial creativity that flourished in Europe and the Americas.
