Product Description

Synopsis

Oscar Niemeyer (Rio de Janeiro, 1907) began his career working as an assistant to the architect Lucio Costa, who introduced him to Le Corbusier. With more than 400 illustrations, this is the most complete study yet published on the work of one of the Brazil's most famous architects. Set out in ten chapters, arranged typologically, the book presents a selection of buildings and projects by an architect who has managed to combine the great tradition of his native Brazil with curvilinear forms, obtaining results that have frequently earned him the accolade of maestro.

First of all let me say that I knew what I was going to get as I have a number of these GG mini-monographs. Photo's are B&W and small, but if you accpet that then it's a very comprehensive monograph on the master's oeuvre. For nice colour photos, get the Weintrub coffee table monograph on Niemeyer too.

HASH(0x996b9abc) out of 5 stars Small black & white architectural monograph from Gustavo Gili 17 Oct. 2005
By Eugene Tenenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 8425215765 ONLY is an exclusively black & white, concise, and copiously illustrated paperback survey published by Gustavo Gili (GG) of Barcelona in English and Spanish (side by side). A short introductory part on several pages is followed by the main review part presenting each shortly described project on excellent B&W photos, plans, sections, elevations, hard line presentation drawings, sketches, etc. At the end, there are several pages with additional information incl. biography. Most of hundreds of only B&W illustrations are technical, but all (incl. B&W photos) are of a good quality, well balanced, crisp and legible. Like all from the Works and Projects series, it is solid among architectural monographs, but slightly smaller than the Studio Paperback series published by Birkhäuser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zürich)/18740* (London).
