The $58.4 million cultural center designed by 103-year-old Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer is set to close just months after its inauguration in March. The Asturian regional government, which partly finances the center, is closing it down due to irregularities in spending and differences in the patronage of the Oscar Niemeyer Foundation.
