Like a volcano rising from the pavement this curved building designed by Oscar Niemeyer houses the national stage and a huge media library. There is a modern hand sculpture and water feature on one side

Our shuttle bus dropped us across from this modern looking building complex. One building looks like a volcano and is the concert hall. The other one that looks like a flying saucer is the library. The complex was designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, and...More

The Volcan, also known as the yogurt pot, is an amazing architecture by Oscar Niemeyer. It looks so out of place in the straight lines of Le Havre's Perret. Inside is an incredible public library and a really nice restaurant.

A unique construction but a must see all the same. It does stand out on the landscape but we are glad we went to see it !

I passed this by several times. You can get a great shot of this on the bridge. I never went in but it is a unique looking architecture.

We did not go inside as it does not look like there is much internally. The architecture itself is quite intriguing and the sculpture on the side (a hand and water) is very nice.

Magnificent architecture. The work of the Brazilian Nyemeyer. The inside has been done up like new, one of the most beautiful libraries that I saw so far

The shape of the building looks strange. Like a previous comment I thought it at the beginning to be a chimney of a plant, although not as symmetric. I do not know what is the significance of using such structure. However, it holds a good...More
