Entry Description

After seven years of design and construction, and intensive coordination between the Brazilian office in Rio de Janeiro, the local architects, and a committed client, the 2011 design by Oscar Niemeyer has become a reality in Leipzig in June 2020. Niemeyer is a master of curves. This is exactly what the lighting design traces inside and out of the Oscar Niemeyer Sphere. The fine curves are emphasized with appropriate light and thus the concrete gets the lightness for which the architect is known. At the same time, an interior atmosphere is created to experience and enjoy this extraordinary ambience.
