Page 210, OSCAR NIEMEYER AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF BRAZIL by David Underwood
It was a long hot drive from central Rio to Niterói. My best friend @luisantmac was born in Rio. He and I were probably more excited about the men on the beach, to be totally honest. But Luis said we had to venture to see the building that looked like a flying saucer, designed by Brazil's most famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. We arrived at the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum and I was speechless. How can someone create structures that move people that way? How is it possible to think about lines and forms with such imagination? I owe Luis a big thank you, because that day started my love affair with Oscar's world. I went on to visit many of his houses and buildings, and ultimately collaborate on a book of his work. Since then I've been collecting many vintage books of Niemeyer.
