Item description for Oscar Niemeyer: Eine Legende Der Moderne / A Legend of Modernism by P. Andreas Deutsches Architektur Museum...

Der brasilianische Architekt Oscar Niemeyer (*1907) gehrt zu den Klassikern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Durch seine Bauten fr Brasilia wurde er weltberhmt. In seinen Gebuden vereinigt er den Respekt fr die jeweilige rtlichkeit mit einem unverwechselbaren, fast barocken Gestaltungsdrang. In dieser Publikation werden - neben dem Text "Meine Architektur" von Niemeyer selbst - in Einzelbeitrgen von renommierten Autoren wichtige und aktuelle Aspekte des Werks von Niemeyer analysiert. Themen sind zum Beispiel die Einordnung seines Schaffens in die moderne Architekturgeschichte Brasiliens, sein Beitrag als Stadtplaner, die Landschaftlichkeit in seinem OEuvre und sein Einfluss auf die Architektur der jngsten Zeit in Deutschland. Den visuellen Glanzpunkt bilden die 48 Seiten mit Farbabbildungen, darunter 30 Fotos aus dem Niemeyer-Archiv, welche die Highlights seiner Architektur eindrcklich zur Darstellung bringen.
