Thousands have attended the funeral of renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in his home city of Rio de Janeiro.
Mr Niemeyer died on Wednesday at the age of 104 and has received honours worthy of a head of state. His coffin lay in state at the presidential palace in Brasilia, one of the many buildings he designed for Brazil's modern capital in the 1950s.
During his long lifetime, Oscar Niemeyer designed more than 600 buildings in Brazil and abroad, among them some of the 20th Century's most famous modernist buildings.
Thousands queued at the palace to pay their last respects.
Among them was Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff, standing centre. Speaking later at a regional summit, Ms Rousseff quoted one of Niemeyer's sayings: "We have to dream or things don't happen."
The coffin was then taken for its final journey to Rio de Janeiro
During the day, his coffin lay in the City Palace, attracting hundreds of visitors.
Flowers were sent by admirers from around the world, including the Cuban leader Raul Castro and his brother, Fidel. Mr Niemeyer was a firm communist.
Oscar Niemeyer was finally laid to rest at the Sao Joao Batista cemetery in Rio's Botafogo district.
Oscar Niemeyer - pictured at the museum that bears his name in Curitiba - died just days before his 105th birthday after spending a month in the hospital.
Doctors said he was still talking about his work until his final days, discussing projects and ideas for the future.
