Niemeyer, who died in 2012, was one of the most prolific modernists of the twentieth century, an architect intrigued by building techniques, and made famous for sensuous curves of concrete.
This documentary was made to coincide with his 100th birthday (in 2007) celebrating his long life dedication to architecture both in Brazil and overseas. It tells the story of Oscar Niemeyer, whose principal feature was ” the curved line “
” I like to think of my work in this way … There are several kinds, and I like to think that each kind occupies a certain region in the cosmos, maybe the cosmos of my mind, but each work finds its proper environment in a region.
And if you go far enough you could expand this region, cultivate it and it would become fruitful and do more… I regard nature as being the strongest influence “. – Harry Bertoia
