Alan Hess Jose de Assis Lefevre (foreword) Alan Weintraub (photographer). A rediscovery of one of the most powerful schools of Modernism

Alan Hess Jose de Assis Lefevre (foreword) Alan Weintraub (photographer). On the one hand sensual and warm, on the other rational yet rhythmic, Brazilian Modernism is the soulful alternative to its European parent, better known for theoretical rigor and cold precision. Using the modern materials of concrete and reinforced glass, as well as wood and steel, Brazilians brought to Modernism an unspoken philosophy that allowed for the free flow of nature and built forms, so that the one was not dominated by the other but rather embraced by it.

New book: Casa Modernista: A History of the Brazil Modern House by Hess and Weintraub (release date: 5 October 2010).

Looking though Alan Weintraub’s beautiful photographs (homeporn, really – his photos have been featured in Architectural Digest), makes one wonder why Oscar would keep these residences private and separate from his huge body of public architecture. For these are beautiful homes. New book: Casa Modernista: A History of the Brazil Modern House by Hess and Weintraub (release date: 5 October 2010).

A rediscovery of one of the most powerful schools of Modernism. On the one hand sensual and warm, on the other rational yet rhythmic, Brazilian Modernism is the soulful alternative to its European parent, better known for theoretical rigor and cold precision. Using the modern materials of concrete and reinforced glass, as well as wood and steel, Brazilians brought to Modernism an unspoken philosophy that allowed for the free flow of nature and built forms, so that the one was not dominated by the other but rather embraced by it. The undulating and amorphous buildings of Oscar Niemeyer are perhaps the best known expressions of this philosophy, in which the typical straight line of Europe’s Modern home becomes a graceful arabesque. The story of the Brazil Modern house is a tradition, a great flowering of talents and vision and a revealing new experience of Modernism, that until now has not been properly documented. Casa Modernista is the first volume to comprehensively cover this extraordinary architecture. Within its pages is featured not only the work of Niemeyer, but also that of all the most important modern architects of this extremely rich, multifaceted nation, including Affonso Eduardo Reidy, Jorge Machado Moreira, Carlos Leao, Alvaro Vital Brazil, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Joao Walter Toscano, and Abrahao Sanovicz.

This is a beautiful book, with hundreds of color photographs. It also includes a brief but well-written introduction to modernist architecture in Brazil that is both easy to read and academic. The author does not assume that the reader has a background in either architecture or Brazilian history, but this is not the fluffy text of a standard coffee-table book. He describes the historical and social context that allowed the style to flourish and relates the modernist homes to their vernacular counterparts. The bulk of the book is devoted to the homes themselves, organized chronologically. Each home gets several pages of pictures, with a brief overview of the style and materials and helpful captions.

This is an excellent overview of modernist homes in Brazil, enjoyable as a beautiful coffee-table book and also informative. Recommended for architecture and design libraries and enthusiasts.

WOW to see the building that were made in the 20's and 30's still looking very modern today. Plus there are more homes from the 80's and 90's.

If you love modernist architecture, especially Latin American style, then you will enjoy looking at this book.

Fantastic book of modern architecture in Brazil, many houses are featured for the first time. All are gems of mid century modern architecture. Incredible! Beautiful photography too. Must have book for anyone interested in modern architecture.

Some really fantastic houses in this book!

I was already familiar with Oscar Niemeyer, Paulo Mendes da Rocha, Marcio Kogan and Issay Weinfeld but this book presents lots of astounding homes across the decades by architects who are new to me.

I would like to have seen some plans/sections in this book as some of the homes are tricky to decipher from the photos alone. However I assume that tracking down the plans from the various architects would have delayed the book for years! Plus many plans would likely need to be drawn from scratch.

Overall a very good book with some great houses.

O livro revela cuidadoso trabalho de pesquisa sobre as casas modernas brasileiras remontando aos anos 1920. As fotos, por si só descritivas, são de grande beleza. Pena não haver edição em português.
