Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955-1980 by MoMA New York

The Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA) is preparing the exhibition Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955-1980. The show will be inaugurated on March 29, 2015, and is organized by Barry Bergdoll (MoMA), Jorge Francisco Liernur (Argentina) and Carlos Eduardo Comas (Brazil). The big news is that all the contemporary images of the exhibition and the catalogue will be by Leonardo Finotti. We have been working for this for a long time, but there is still work to do!

Bernardes Arquitetura - House in Tijucopava, Guarujá SP, Brazil

Today´s newsletter features a new house designed by Bernardes Arquitetura. The project, a beach house, is located near Guarujá, in São Paulo state. The sloped site with amazing views and the hot weather led Bernardes to the main project decisions. A wooden screen protects the first floor which contains the bedrooms. The second floor, much lighter than the first one, houses master bedroom, the living and dining room, and a large terrace with pool that overlooks the sea scenery.
