Happy 102nd, Oscar!

About a month ago, we noted Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer was returning to work after a bout with gall stones and a cancerous tumor in his kidney. Earlier this week, Niemeyer celebrated his 102nd birthday, doing what he loves: working. He's unimpressed about reaching the ripe old age of 102, saying, "There's nothing to commemorate."

Have you seen any of Niemeyer's work in your travels? Has his work inspired you in any way to think differently about a project, especially given his love of domes, curves, and sweeping lines? Are you part of a firm that has someone in place whose tirelessness is similarly inspiring?
