Description
Producing a style of contemporary architecture known for its warmth and sensual appeal as well as its rational and rhythmic forms, Brazilian modernism emerged as a more humane alternative to the intellectual precision of European modernism and allowed for a high degree of personal expression. Here the photographer and the architecture critic who produced Oscar Niemeyer Buildings catalog 65 Brazilian residences designed since the late 1920s. The large, captioned color photos illustrate how architects like Gregori Warchavchik, Joćo Batista Vilanova Artigas, Ruy Ohtake, Eduardo Longo, Joćo Walter Toscano, Lina Bo Bardi, and Niemeyer developed their individual approaches to modernism through private commissions.
