This book, 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 gives an account of the first and only meeting between these two great architects, shortly 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 share a passion for the practice of drawing and its crucial importance in architectural work. 'Architecture should not just be about designing a building that works well. It can also be beautiful, it can be different, it can be surprising, can't it? In fact, surprise is the main element of a work of art.' Oscar Niemeyer
