Brazil's Modern Architecture, Paperback Book


Now available in paperback, this book is the most comprehensive survey and analysis of Brazilian modern architecture to date, written by a young generation of Brazilian architects and historians for an international audience.

Examining the works from the 'inside', and with different critical perspectives, they offer new and compelling readings of the country's architecture.

Discussing the works of Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, as well as those by less known but equally respected architects such as Affonso Eduardo Reidy, Vilanova Artigas and Jorge Machado Moreira, they show how modernist ideals were incorporated into a country with a legacy of contrasts and contradictions.
