Oscar Niemeyer

Francesca Vannucci

FROM AUSPICIOUS BEGINNINGS AS A DRAFTSMAN FOR LE CORBUSIER’S MINISTRY BUILDING IN RIO, OSCAR NIEMEYER WOVE A TALE OF MID-CENTURY IDEOLOGY THROUGH HIS WORK, HIS LIFE AND HIS LEGACY. WE FIND NIEMEYER'S OTHER WORDLY EYE TO BE TIMELESS AND AN ENDLESS SOURCE OF DESIGN INSPIRATION… Oscar Niemeyer- Alvorada Brasilian Presidential Palace

WITH A SEXY AND UNEXPECTEDLY FEMININE POINT OF VIEW, NIEMEYER REBELS AGAINST THE TYPICAL MODERNIST TRADITIONS OF FORM FOLLOWING FUNCTION, INSISTING INSTEAD THAT FOR HIM, “FORM FOLLOWS BEAUTY.”

HIS WORK IS A STUDY IN GRACEFULLY CURVED LINES THAT SEEM TO DEFY GRAVITY. THE FUTURISTIC AND SPARSE PANORAMA OF HIS MOST FAMOUS CREATION, THE CAPITOL CITY OF BRASILIA, HAS BECOME THE VISUAL DEFINITION FOR UTOPIA.

BUILT IN 41 MONTHS, FROM 1956 TO 1960, THE CITY IS STILL LOOKED UPON AS AN ARCHITECTURAL MASTERPIECE AND A SYMBOL FROM THE HEIGHT OF THE MODERNIST MOVEMENT.
