The avant-garde building conceived by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, the Headquarters of the French Communist Party, is again photographed, this time, by Denis Esakov.
Oscar Niemeyer's Communist Party Headquarters in Paris was recently captured by photographer Denis Esakov. Take a new look at the Brazilian architect's concrete achievement, one of his first in Europe. 

Recall that in 1945, as an architect of some reputation, Oscar joined the Communist Party of Brazil; but during the military dictatorship of Brazil Oscar Niemeyer's office was invaded by surprise, his projects begin to be mysteriously rejected and he loses his clientele. In 1965 he went into exile in France and began a new phase of his life and work, where, among other projects, he created the headquarters of the French Communist Party.

Oscar Niemeyer was commissioned by the French Communist Party to design their new office Headquarters in Paris. The buildings intent is based on letting it "breathe" with the city and not break the site. This is materialized in the occupation of land under the ground level, generating spaces underground that pop back up in the forecourt.
