RIO DE JANEIRO is a place with jungles, forests and all kind of plants, flowers and trees. Today the Brazilian Landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx came along and organizing native plants in accordance with aesthetic principles, especially Cubism¬† and abstractionism. He created a modern grammer for international landscape design.
Burle Marx always thought og himself first as a painter. Landscape design, he once wrote ” was merely the method I found to organize and compose my drawings and paintings, using less conventional materials.

It was while studying painting in Germany during the Weimar Republic that Burle Marx realized that the vegetation Brazilians then dismissed as scrub and brush was truly extraordinary.
Burle Marx is also known for his many ambitious projects in Rio. The city‚Äôs largest park, the bayside Aterro do Flamengo, left, is an early example of one of his signature projects.
Nothing surpasses the sidewalks of Copacabana, left, with colorful abstract stone mosaics extending unbroken the entire length of the famous beach. Viewed from above, Burle Marx appears to have painted a single canvas four miles long.

Rio is one amazing city. I love the culture, the streets, everything.
Did Burle Marx also do the sidewalks in Portugal? It seems they used the exact same designs from here in copacabana. The sidewalk pattern is so distinct they even use it on tourist t-shirts and cangas.
