Architectural Archive of Oscar Niemeyer

Documentary heritage submitted by Brazil and recommended for inclusion in the Memory of the World Register in 2013.

The collection consists of 8927 documents, with boards of sketches sets, boards of architectural albums and boards of technical drawings which form a valuable record of the work of an artist who marked the international architecture of the twentieth century. In addition to primary research sources, many of these documents are true works of art. The sketches and albums are original documents, rare and almost entirely unique. They not only bring traces of free curves and poetic that marked the work of Niemeyer, but also reveal the architect's working method.
