Written by Roberto Dulio, Photographed by Roland Halbe
The first official book on the most important Italian building by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, one of the leaders of modern architecture.
With a step-by-step study, the volume tells the story of the construction, near the city of Milan, of Niemeyer’s building, now headquarters of Mondadori Editorial Group. A collection of never-before-seen architectural plans, original drawings, and unpublished sketches offers a fascinating look at the architect’s work and a tool for all who wish to deepen their knowledge of Oscar Niemeyer’s works.
The volume is enlivened by an extraordinary photographic shoot by Roland Halbe, an international architectural photographer who captures every detail that makes this spectacular building a harmonious set and an example of indissoluble integration between form and structure, still considered one of the most unique and elegant works ever made by the Brazilian architect.
