Abstract Stone Mosaic Sidewalks of Rio
Architecture & Interiors
Organizing and integrating sidewalks, landscapes and native plants of Brazil by the aesthetic rules of painting established an unique dialogue between the two disciplines: organization of abstract painting as a starting point for the lay out of garden design and species. The name behind this success is Roberto Burle Marx. He created a new universal language for landscape design.
It is especially compelling to see how his work in one field is in tune with the other ones. He made drawings, sculptures, paintings and tapestries. THe visual harmony that exist in his works are translated in the landscape design not only with a simple translation of the aesthetic elements but also by understanding soil adaptation, climate, odor, volume and appearance of the landscape composition stages.
