Workers clean the Planalto Palace ramp in Brasilia, on December 6, 2012, awaiting for the arrival of the coffin with the remains of Brazilian renown architect Oscar Niemeyer, who died on the eve in his hometown Rio de Janeiro. Niemeyer, the Brazilian icon who revolutionized modern architecture and designed much of the country's futuristic capital Brasilia, died in Rio Wednesday at 104. The architect's body was to be flown to Brasilia Thursday for a funeral wake at the presidential palace, one of his major works. The body was then to return to Rio for another funeral wake followed by the burial, according to Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes.
