This book, which is part of the Ivorypress Architecture collection, presents a conversation between Oscar Niemeyer and Norman Foster, with the participation of Hans Ulrich Obrist.
A conversation that accounts for the first and only meeting that took place between these two great architects before Niemeyer's death. The interview reveals many interests shared by the two architects, some of which it was logical to anticipate and others that come as a real surprise. Both also share a passion for the practice of drawing and its crucial importance in architectural work.
"Architecture shouldn't just be about designing a building that works well. It can also be beautiful, different, surprising, right? In fact, surprise is the main element of a work of art." -Oscar Niemeyer.
