Apart from him being ancient, which is obviously an asset when DL-nomination is at stake, the guy is completely uninteresting. Wiki states: "He was a pioneer in the exploration of the constructive possibilities of reinforced concrete." Right.
But it's quite interesting to see how our beloved Latin-American friends tend to differ with me. Mr. Magno here says that Oscar Niemeyer's days has been counted.[/quote]
I have to disagree, first of all the DL bases it's participents on
there fame in what they did in life not just there age.
Second the famousness is usually judged by if there
death will hit BBC news or not.
As for Niemeyer's days being counted - I heard that he was well
and still actively working at age 97 so i suppose he couldn't be that
frail. Infact i believe sometime in early 2006 he exspects to finish
another project so he seems to be thinking ahead.
If it weren't for him to be actively working i would
think he would soon be at the top of the bright white
stairs to heaven but so far he has proved otherwise.
But overall still a good bet i say. .
