Format: Paperback
NIEMEYER HAS BEEN HIGHLY CRITICIZED FOR POOR FUNCTIONALIST CONSIDERATION IN HIS BLDGS, SUCH AS HUMAN USE. MANY OF THIS ACCUSATIONS MAY BE TRUE. BUT THIS BOOK OFFERS AN ANALYSIS OF THE ARCHITECT'S WORK FROM A SURREALIST POINT OF VIEW, THAT HELPS US UNDERSTAND WHERE HE COMES FROM AND WHY THE FREE-FORMS ARE ALMOST AN OBSTINATE CONSTANT IN HIS WORK TO THIS DAY. IT'S INTERSTING TO READ UNDERWOOD'S THESIS, AS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF SEEING AND STUDYING THE WORK OF THIS MASTER OF BRAZILIAN ARCHITECTURE.

HASH(0x97d0a1bc) out of 5 stars The artist and the architect! 10 Jan. 2008
By Hiram Gòmez Pardo Venezuela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
At the moment to create the most exigent list of those most distinguished architects of the last Century, Oscar Niemeyer must be included in that illustrious account.

Every project is so innovative that really captures the whole attention of any simple newcomer in this area.

Niemeyer arrived to his centenary the last year, so this is an invitation to dive into the creative universe of this Brazilian master.

Don't miss this fascinating book
