Its not only Football Brazil has to offer
We love the World Cup (well one member of Cimmermann) but it s not only football Brazil excels in. Their modernist architecture is stunning, see some of our favourites –
Paraty House’s two reinforced concrete boxes, sit atop each other, connected on the mountainside of one of the islands of the colonial city of Paraty and Angra dos Reis (between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro), like two modern prisms between the large colossal stones of the Brazilian coast. The building projects outward from the mountain, almost onto the beach, in an 8m cantilever. The house finds balance in the topography of the land, creating an extensive open doorway and living space in the practically untouched nature. Paraty House features a furniture collection showcasing 20thcentury design, including works by many well-known artists.
Below is a selection of Modernist masterpieces.
Brazil’s most famous architect is Oscar Niemeyer, who is considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture. Niemeyer was best known for his design of civic buildings for Brasília, a planned city that became Brazil’s capital in 1960.
