Burle Marx, William Howard Adams
MoMA New York, 1991
SKU 21629

Published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this book recognizes Brazilian landscape architect Robert Burle Marx's affinity for the sensibilities of such 20th-century artists as Calder, Lýger, Mirý, and Picasso, and his unique ability to apply their vocabularies in eloquent compositions of earth and plant. Painting a vivid portrait of the artist, author William Howard Adams describes the evolution of Burle Marx's art, his close collaborative relationships with such architects as Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa, and Rino Levi, and his long-standing efforts to save the Brazilian rain forest. The nearly 90 illustrations include original plans for many projects as well as stunning photographs of the finished works.
