22 Sep Roberto Burle Marx Lectures
Landscape as Art and Urbanism
Being one of the most important figures to shape landscape architecture, the work of Roberto Burle Marx has featured across a variety of formats and outlets. With the exception of his writings which largely remained inaccessible, until today. This book fills the gap by offering the translated lectures of the architect on such topics like the Concepts in Landscape Composition, Gardens and Ecology, and the Problem of Garden lightening, Landscapes of Brazil, and, a tribute essay to plants. Also includes a series of green landscape photos by Brazilian photographer Leonardo Finotti, showing the merging sceneries between natural landscapes and human-made beton constructions.
