About the Book

Oscar Niemeyer, the last surviving father of Modernist architecture, rose to prominence at Le Corbusier’s side but ultimately swerved from the hard, straight lines of orthodox Modernism. Instead he forged a parallel track that mimics the crescendos and denouements of human feeling through swooping curves, graceful arches, and sensuous lines. Using reinforced concrete, he has elevated the everyday to the sublime. Assouline is proud to present the limited edition Oscar Niemeyer, the most complete and lavish exploration of his 101-year life and career. Sketches and original photography, alongside contributions from Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava and Zaha Hadid, affirm Niemeyer’s considerable and continuing influence on twentieth and twenty-first-century architecture.
This book comes in an Assouline canvas tote bag.
