The man is nearing 103 years of age, yet is still unstoppable: architect Oscar Niemeyer is launching yet another book. This one, however, is the most ambitious ever.
OSCAR NIEMEYER from the Assouline LUXURY COLLECTION is a limited edition, hand-made volume that is the most complete and lavish exploration of Niemeyer’s 101-year life and career.
It contains sketches and original photography by author Matthieu Salvaing, and
contributions from Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Frank Gehry, and Zaha Hadid.
The book will be launched at the upcoming Miami's Art Basel, next month, with a posh fête.
