A health official says renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer has been hospitalized again in Rio de Janeiro.
A Hospital Samaritano spokeswoman says she does not have details on the 102-year-old architect's condition.
She spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because she is not authorized to be named under hospital rules.
Niemeyer spent more than three weeks in the same facility last October with an irregular heartbeat.
Weeks earlier, he underwent gallstone surgery and had an intestinal tumor removed.
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.
