The Museum of Art in Pampulha, by Oscar Niemeyer. The national Brasilian architect was comissioned by Juscelino Kubitschek, then Mayor of Belo Horizonte, to build this and a few other buildings around an artificial lake where a new high quality suburb was created. At that point in time, what characterized Niemeyer compared to other modern architects, was the use of curves. The building works beautifully with the garden architecture of Max Burle.
