This exceptional exhibition pays tribute to the architect Oscar Niemeyer (1901-2012), who died last December, via the history of the construction of the city of Brasilia, his magnum opus and one of the major architectural events of the 20th century. The exhibition is presented inside one of Niemeyer’s landmark constructions in Paris, the Communist Party Headquarters, so also gives you the rare opportunity to explore this listed historical monument. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Brasilia in 2010, the travelling exhibition presents rare objects, historical photographs and maquettes, and demonstrates its creator’s radical modernist philosophies.
Until 29 June. 10am-6pm. Closed Sun. Free entry.
Siège du Parti Communiste Français, Espace Oscar Niemeyer, 2 Place du Colonel Fabien, 19th.
