FILE - In this Sept. 10, 2010, Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer attends a ceremony where he was decorated with Spain's Arts and Letters medal in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A spokeswoman for Hospital Samaritano says the 104-year-old Niemeyer was hospitalized Saturday. She said information on his condition and the reasons for his hospitalization were not immediately available. Niemeyer spent nearly two weeks at the Rio de Janeiro in May being treated for pneumonia and dehydration. Niemeyer designed much of Brazil's futuristic capital, Brasilia, and Rio's Sambadrome, where the annual carnival parade is held. He also helped design the United Nations building in New York City.
