Overview
More
Projetada por Niemeyer em 1951 para sua moradia, é considerada um dos mais significativos exemplares da arquitetura moderna brasileira, sendo notoriamente reconhecida, por especialistas de história e crítica da arte, como síntese apurada e premonitória da arquitetura moderna, de livre criação autoral que floresceu na Europa e nas Américas. Residence designed by Oscar Niemeyer in 1952 for his dwelling. The house, owned by the family of the architect, is gently released for public viewing by its historical and achitectural interest.

The house is closed, under reconstruction, but even in the guest house - 500m before the villa - no one told us... I was very disappointed after 4 km walking up in the forest, 36 Celsius and in a sudden storm!

Niemeyer is already for 8 decades a living monument of contemporary architecture. His personal family house dates from the early fifties and shows clearly his love for curves and the female body.

Casa das Canoas is marvelous, even more so at night. We attended a gala event as a trip celebration prepared by the group we were guests with. In this regards, the site itself was amazing. Whatever catering and food service they hired was also spectacular....More

We tried to visit in early February on a Saturday and were told in advance that it wouldn't be open for visitation, but we went anyway to see it anyway. There was no one around, the pool was filled but very green water and leaves,...More

Please note that the web address linked to this landmark is wrong - it goes to another "Casa das Canoas" in Rio - but not the one designed by Oscar Niemeyer. I have not visited the Casa das Canoas but would love to one day....More
