Oscar Niermeyer: Architect Turned Songwriter

103-year-old Brazilian architect Oscar Niermeyer, the man behind NYC's United Nations complex, has turned to songwriting. According to Brazilian paper O Globo, Niermeyer has written a song called “Tranquilo con la Vida” (“Feeling Good About Life"). The lyrics recall the relaxed life and taking walks on the beach wearing sandals and pajama bottoms. [UnBeige]
