The man who built the future. Seven decades of work from the Brazilian visionary. Now over 100 years old, Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer is still practicing - over seven decades since one of his first projects, a 1936 collaboration with Lucio Costa and Le Corbusier. A technical pioneer and one of the 20th century`s 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. The "New York Times" wrote on the occasion of his 100th anniversary: "In the 1940s, `50s and `60s he established himself as one of Modernism`s greatest luminaries, infusing stark abstract forms with a beguiling tropical hedonism that reshaped Brazil`s identity in the popular imagination and mesmerized architects around the globe." 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; and 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.
