Long overdue, this fresh, critical evaluation of Eladio Dieste, a leading force in post-war modern architecture, is the only book available on the subject.A Uruguayan trained as an engineer, Dieste made his mark on 1950s architecture with his innovative long-span vaulting systems for utilitarian structures. While his place in architecture commands the respectful attention of his professional peers worldwide, unlike other celebrated South American colleagues of his generation such as Oscar Neimeyer and Luis Barragan, Dieste has not had his work fully documented until now. Readers hungry for new references to post-war Modernism will find that this volume opens a window on a remarkable career. Covering Dieste's work over the past 30 years, the book discusses his: -- direct ties to modern masters Gropius, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe-- intimate linking of resolutely modern and traditional concepts-- easy blending of landscape and technology-- broad influence in South American architecture-- remarkable skill in design and engineeringThe book also includes an extensive overview of and analytical essay on his work.
