Brazil is full of energy, creativity and originality. Amid its glamorous beaches and tropical vegetation, a new generation of architects are establishing a global reputation for themselves with houses and hotels that combine a bold contemporary aesthetic with a uniquely Brazilian sensibility. From Sao Paulo to Rio, to the coastal towns of Paraty and Ilhabela, the locations in this lively book cover a diverse range of projects, from stunning city homes to country retreats and tempting coastal escapes. All the buildings feature new takes on indoor-outdoor living, beautifully crafted local materials and original elements such as indoor gardens or integrated courtyards, and a mastery of natural light. These qualities build upon the potent legacy of Brazilian modernist design, which includes figureheads such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi and Robert Burle Marx, and is represented today by such design luminaries as Marcio Kogan, Isay Weinfeld and Arthur Casas. Featuring iconic projects by Marcos Acayaba and Pritzker-prize-winning architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, together with homes by designers such as Fernanda Marques, Guilherme Torres and Andre Piva, New Brazilian House is a wonderful reflection of the vitality and verve of Brazil's architecture and design today.
