$90

About

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. About the Author Elisabetta Andreoli is an expert on modern and contemporary architecture in Brazil. Adrian Forty is an architectural historian and Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University of London. He is the author of Objects of Desire (1986), Words and Buildings (2000), and is currently writing a study of concrete and architecture. Guilherme Wisnik is a practising architect and an associate at Metro Arquitetos Associados based in São Paulo. He has published articles in specialist journals and is the author of a monograph on Lucio Costa.

Having gained a doctorate in History, he now specializes in the art and architecture of Brazil.
