    It's such a shame that the world was too blind to share his vision of the future.
    Can't help but feel, that he was one of only a handful of people whose talent and vision truly justified the term 'architect'.

    BBC News Article

    Even now, the National Congress of Brazil building, still looks like something fantastic from some far away future.

    The man was obsessed with womens breasts and body shapes to the point that his buildings took on their shapes.

    Hmm... looking at the above picture it's not only women's bodies that provided inspiration.

    In seriousness, a visionary architect and an amazing mind.
