Oscar Niemeyer Back in the Hospital

While it was sad to learn that Oscar Niemeyer wasn’t going to be able to make it to Brasilia’s 50th anniversary, it was probably better that he did decide not to make the trip. The 102 year-old starchitect has once again been hospitalized, currently battling a urinary tract infection. Although “doctors do not feel this is a serious illness” and he’s reported to be stable and otherwise healthy, this stay comes just six months after Niemeyer had been forced to spend nearly a month in the hospital following two surgeries, one unplanned. As such, he’ll be staying on as a patient for a few days, just to make sure he pulls through without any complications.
