magnificent architecture of Brazil's iconic architect, Oscar Niemeyer, is truly worth adding to any
home or library. A companion to Oscar Niemeyer Homes, Buildings, makes an impressive set that defines
20th, mid-century and contemporary architecture in Brazil. Not unlike Frank Lloyd Wright in America,
Le Corbuier, or Mies van der Rhohe in Europe, Oscar Niemeyer as the designer of Brasilia, and origin
of important architectural design and reference for Brazil.
Lavish photography by Weintraub, fills the book with color images of Niemeyer's buildings in photographic
representations that pull no punches regarding the condition and current use of the structures. As in Oscar
Niemeyer Homes, Building's photo images are documented with knowledgeable and descriptive text from Alan Hess.
