Documents the spectacular museum in Rio de Janeiro. The Niterķi MSC is the most recent product in the Niemeyer evolution. Construction began in 1991 and the museum was completed in 1996. Niemeyer's early sketches, his architectural drawings, and interior and exterior photographs of the finished building show how the architect was able to capitalize on the breathtaking views of Rio from a bluff in Niterķi, on the opposite side of the bay. Additional illustrations by Jean Petit and TEXTS IN ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE.
