Oscar Niemeyer In 3D


Now you can find the dreamy concrete of Oscar Niemeyer’s architecture distilled into a little box. Publication Visionaire 62 Rio and online art market Paddle8 have collaborated to create a limited edition portfolio of anaglyphs depicting the iconic built work of Brazilian Architect Oscar Niemeyer.
