Lines and curves

This was in ArtDaily today, December 6. I love the lines and curves, not only in the building itself, but in the reflection. Wonderful! Then I read it was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, who died on December 5 at the age of 104. I had just heard a piece on the radio about him. Seems he has the credit for making Brasilia what it is, architecturally speaking.  If you look at the Wikipedia page, the images show his fondness for curves and lines in many, if not most, of his projects. Do you notice the lines and patterns of an object when you see it? It seems that’s what I notice–can’t tell which comes first–color or line.
