Brasilia’s Birthday

22 Apr

Google is celebrating the birthday of Brasilia through a great doodle:

What is absolutely awesome is they got Oscar Niemeyer to draw it for them! He is the designer of many of the buildings that make up Brasilia (and happen to be depicted in the doodle). Even more amazing is he is alive at 104 and still working!

Here is what Google said about it:

“We’re celebrating the 52nd birthday of Brasilia with a Doodle on Brazil’s homepage drawn by Oscar Niemeyer, the architect who designed many of its buildings. His great works, such as Brasilia’s Cathedral, the Kubitschek Memorial and the Three Powers Square are some of the monuments that make the city a UNESCO World Heritage site.”

    He is 104 YEARS OLD?! That is an absolute blessing to be alive that long and still have the ability to work…and come up with such a neat doodle!

    I definitely want to be like Oscar…
