One of the most remarkable creative figures and prolific architects of the last hundred years, Oscar Niemeyer is best known for his founding work on Brasília, the modernist capital of Brazil. A great believer in the power of the imagination, his social engagement forced him into exile under the country's military dictatorship. In this book, Niemeyer invites readers into his studio and home in Rio de Janeiro. Matthieu Salvaing also traveled with him to São Paulo and Belo Horizonte to photograph and explore Niemeyer's iconic architecture, which contrasts curves and straight lines.
