Description

The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012) is a twentieth century classic. He became world renowned for planning and building the capital Brasilia, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987. In 1988 he was awarded the Pritzker Prize. His buildings are deeply respectful of the site and are characterized by an unmistakable, almost Baroque design impulse. Niemeyer, who was highly prolific up until his death, is one of the most productive architect s in history and designed over 600 buildings. This second and revised edition of Oscar Niemeyer: A Legend of Modernity has a new preface and an updated biography and list of works.
