Roberto Burle Marx: Innovation and Activism

Friday, September 13, 2019

Three thought-provoking scholars explore unique aspects of Brazilian modernist Roberto Burle Marx—the visionary landscape architect and conservationist whose bold aesthetic fused nature, culture, history, and art into landscapes he hoped could change cities and society.
