Description:
It’s a shame When Brazil was Modern is out of print. Still the best and most complete survey of modern Brazilian architecture, this chunky yet elegant paperback is packed with more than 125 buildings built between 1925 and 1960. It features work by thirty-three architects, from celebrated architects such as Oscar Niemeyer and Paulo Mendes da Rocha to lower profile designers such as Flavio de Carvalho and Lina Bo Bardi. Accompanying each building entry are photos, drawings, and visitor access information. It’s the perfect traveling companion for next year’s trip to the 2016 Rio Olympics.
