Abstract:

"Spanning the period from the 1930s to the present, this book focuses on recurring themes within Brazil's Modernism: the place of colonial architecture and the colonial legacy; the influence of sexuality in architectural imagery; the importance of leisure and luxury; the role of the favela as a backdrop and inspiration for development; and the spectacular growth of Brazil's cities. The book includes a great variety of buildings, including those by renowned architects such as Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, Roberto Burle Marx, Vilanova Artigas, Lina Bo Bardi and Paulo Mendes da Rocha, as well as more recent projects by Jaime Lerner, Joao Filgueiras Lima, Ruy Ohtake, Paulo Zimbres and others. Uniquely, Brazil also considers works by Lygia Pape, Helie Oiticica and other artists, and argues for art's centrality to a complete history of Brazil's architectural Modernism. Richard J. Williams's Brazil is an essential read for anyone interested in Brazil's architectural past and present as well as Latin American history."--BOOK JACKET.
