Pedro Barros & Murilo Peres Shred Oscar Niemeyer’s Skateable Buildings

Oscar Niemeyer, one of Brazil’s foremost architects, is famous for creating perfectly transitioned buildings—works of art that are bucket-list skatespots for most South American skaters. Incredibly, Pedro Barros (whose 2015 In Transition entry made the world take notice) and Murilo Peres were actually given permission to skate these towering edifices, and Surfer Today was there to cover the event, shot by the Concrete Dreams project. Barros has fantasized about skating these buildings since he was a kid—the National Congress in Brasília; the Contemporary Art Museum and Popular Theater in Niterói; the Administrative City in Belo Horizonte; and House of the Canoas in Rio de Janeiro—so this is like a dream come true. Watch the footage, above, then read the backstory at the ST site.

Check out some of Barros’s work with The Berrics over the years, including his winning In Transition video, below:
