The most comprehensive survey and analysis of 20th-century Brazilian architecture, told by a new generation of critics and historians Covering around 200 buildings and urban designs, key events and projects appear within a series of thematic chapters Extensively illustrated with both archival black-and-white and new colour photographs, drawings and sketches Offers a fresh reading of Brazil's era of high-modernism in the 1930s-60s, placing it in context with regard to earlier and later architecture and broader changes taking place in Brazilian culture at the time Charts post-Brasilia developments, including case studies of contemporary projects, showing the relevance of Brazilian architecture within the international scene Brazil's architecture is strikingly distinct from Latin America as a whole and diverse in itself.
