102-Year-Old Brazilian Architect Oscar Niemeyer Hospitalized

RIO DE JANEIRO Renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, 102, was hospitalized on Monday in Rio de Janeiro to be treated for a urinary infection, medical sources reported.

Although the state of his health is stable and doctors do not feel this is a serious illness, the architect will remain at the hospital for an as yet undetermined period to undergo several tests, a spokesman for the Hospital Samaritano told Efe.

Last year, Niemeyer was hospitalized for 24 days in the same hospital with an intestinal tumor, which was surgically removed.

Niemeyer is internationally known for being the designer of the main government buildings in Brasilia and dozens of works in other cities around the world.

He is considered to be one of the fathers of modern architecture, remains professionally active and is currently working on several new projects. EFE
