9780847827985: Oscar Niemeyer: Houses

Oscar Niemeyer is one of the greatest architects of our time. Hugely influential, his work has added a new dimension to modern architecture in the twentieth century. The designer of Brasilia showed that the rhythmic, sensuous lines of Brazilian Modernism were as legitimately modern as the rectilinear lines of the Bauhaus. Oscar Niemeyer Houses showcases the houses built by this seminal modern master in a lavish format that finally does justice to his extraordinary work. Viewed as a collection, these houses serve to demonstrate the wide range of Niemeyer's prodigious genius. The designs show a personal and eclectic facet to Niemeyer's creative imagination, a side of the master little known and under-appreciated. Often built for family members or major clients, they show a wealth of solutions that respond to a wide range of sites: the steep hillsides of Rio, the Atlantic beach shore, the rain forest, and the residential neighborhoods of Rio and Sao Paulo. This celebrated work stands as an enduring and notable tribute to one of the last of the international masters of Modernism.

From Booklist:

Internationally renowned architect Niemeyer is generally known for his public structures, but as this oversize book of more than 200 photographs and illustrations highlights, his home designs also displayed great skill and artistry. His work is marked by sculptured modernity, where structure and composition follow the form of natural irregularities. The text provides an overview of the three major periods in Niemeyer's house-designing career: from 1936 to 1953, 1953 to 1963, and 1963 to 2005. The author focuses on more than 20 major residential works, showing how Niemeyer used space and light to connect interior and exterior views. Panoramic photographs of homes throughout the world, including Niemeyer's own home in Brazil, capture the architect's ability to create a context of modernity in nature. Fascinating reading and viewing for anyone interested in modern architecture. Vernon Ford
