The great Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer died last December, a few days short of his 105th birthday. Niemeyer went his own sweet way with modernism, adding sensual curves to the strict lines, and in Brasilia, he imagined the perfect city.
Celebrated architectural photographer Todd Eberle has a passion for Niemeyer that matches ours. So, to accompany our February issue - out now - we have dedicated a 28-page supplement to his extraordinary images of Niemeyer's work as a tribute to an architect like no other.
'Niemeyer was the modernist who most understood that architecture should attempt to lift the spirits, stir the soul and pull a better future into the present,' says Wallpaper* Editor-in-Chief Tony Chambers. 'If Wallpaper* has a patron saint, then Niemeyer is it.'
