Oscar Niemeyer : eine Legende der Moderne = a legend of modernism by Oscar Niemeyer( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, born in 1907, counts as one of the great architects of the 20th century. He became well known for his buildings in Brasilia, which combined a respect for the immediate surroundings with unmistakeable, almost baroque designs. In this publication, noted authors analyse important and topical aspects of Niemeyer's works and the text "My Architecture" by Niemeyer himself is featured. His work is set in the context of Brazil's modern architectural history, and his contribution to urban planning is reviewed. The role of the landscape in his oeuvre, and his influence on recent German architecture is examined. Striking colour photographs from the Niemeyer archives, spread over 48 pages illustrate the highlights of his architecture. This book has been published to accompany the exhibition "Oscar Niemeyer" which will start in February 2003 at the German Museum for Architecture (DAM) in Frankfurt

Harry Seidler : lifework by Vladimir Belogolovskiĭ( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive survey of the work of a master of mid- to late-twentieth-century modernist design. Over the course of a career spanning more than five decades, Australian architect Harry Seidler embarked upon a long series of dramatically innovative and sculptural houses with a rare sensitivity to site, space, and structure. And while these soaring, inspiring houses have been the source of Seidler's fame within architectural circles, this book gives a complete view of this modern master's body of work for the first time. Seidler is now widely acknowledged as a leading member of the postwar generation of modernists and one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century in the southern hemisphere. With commissions not only in Australia but also in Austria, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Hong ..."--Publisher description

Niemeyer became world renowned for planning and building the capital Brasilia, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Wir müssen die Welt verändern by Oscar Niemeyer( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurz vor seinem Tod hat Oscar Niemeyer, der wohl berühmteste Architekt unserer Zeit, im Alter von 104 Jahren ein Resümee seines Lebens und zugleich eine große Reflexion über unsere Gesellschaft vorgelegt.>>Die Architektur ist nur ein Vorwand. Wichtig ist das Leben, wichtig ist der Mensch, dieses merkwürdige Wesen mit Seele und Gefühl, das nach Gerechtigkeit und Schönheit hungert<<ist die grundlegende Philosophie, die Niemeyers Leben und Arbeit leitete. In acht kurzen Kapiteln spricht der Protagonist fast eines Jahrhunderts der Architektur über die Rolle der Fantasie und der Freundschaft, über Alter, Politik und Kunst, schildert Begegnungen mit Leitfiguren des 20. Jahrhunderts von Fidel Castro bis Sartre und Le Corbusier.>>Jeder muss seinen Teil beitragen, Neues wagen, Ideen in die Welt setzen<<- in einem Buch voller Hoffnung, Lebensmut und Leidenschaft erklärt uns der Architekt, der seiner Heimat Brasilien eine neue Hauptstadt entwarf, warum die Welt sich ändern muss - und dass es nur von uns abhängt, sie zu einem besseren Ort zu machen
