MAM







Our friend Martin ┼Żampach shares some images he did at Museum of Modern Art (MAM) in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Designed by Brazilian modernist Affonso Eduardo Reidy (1909 - 1964) in 1955, the expressive building is the finest example of Brazilian tropical organic modern of the half of the last century. The glazed facade of the main elevated volume has dramatic cadence of external pillar elements, connected by longitudinal beams, providing a galley level free of internal columns or structural walls.

The landscape design of the park around is the work of landscape artist Roberto Burle Marx.
