"This project is about the United Nations complex in New York City, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. A Board of Design was commissioned to create a complex that would express the vision set out in the organization's Charter. Ten architects from around the world were invited, Niemeyer was the the youngest. He encountered some difficulties before joining the board and when in NY. Just like him, I am a Brazilian architect who faced obstructions in accessing this site." -- artist's website
