Abstract:

From one side of the globe to the other, Isay Weinfeld is one of the most sought-after architects. Weinfeld is inimitable in the realm of combining modern elegance with tropical lightness. Under his hand, lushly landscaped courtyards and long corridors open into wide spaces; a view of a pool or a dramatic indoor waterfall. The Brazilian architect's works are characterized by glass and concrete, dark wood shades and soft color accents; all elements of a special brand of distinguished restraint. Isay Weinfeld, a volume dedicated to an architect who rarely discusses his own work, shows the full range of homes and hotels designed for prominent artists, actors, filmmakers, and businessmen. Previously unpublished photographs visually describe his work and discussions of unique projects give insight into Weinfeld's fine set of skills.
