SÍTIO ROBERTO BURLE MARX
ROBERTO BURLE MARX
Built by the landscaper in his own residence in Rio de Janerio, the Sitio Burle Marx offers 365,00 sqm of unequaled gardens. He has managed to gather one of the most important collections of tropical and subtropical plants of the world in his garden, that counts on more than 3,500 species.
Issue #183 is part of Box Set #26, dedicated to the photographic journey by Brazilian photographer Leonardo Finotti into five landscapes designed by Roberto Burle Marx around Brazil from the 1940s to 1990s, interpreting a range of scales of Burle Marx's work from private gardens to urban squares and large-scale public projects.
