Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seven decades of work from the Brazilian visionary
On the occasion of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer's 100th anniversary, the New York Times wrote, ""In the 1940s, 50s and 60s he established himself as one of Modernisms greatest luminaries, infusing stark abstract forms with a beguiling tropical hedonism that reshaped Brazils identity in the popular imagination and mesmerized architects around the globe.""

To this day, over seven decades since one of his first projects—a 1936 collaboration with Lucio Costa and Le Corbusier—Oscar Niemeyer is still practicing. A technical pioneer and one of the 20th centurys most important architects, Niemeyer has designed close to 700 realized and unrealized buildings and, most notably, was the architect for the principal monuments in Brasilia, his homeland's futuristic capital city and his undisputed major masterpiece.

About the Series:

Every book in TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series features:

  • approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans
  • introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects
  • the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions
  • an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography, and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings
