January 12th  - 20th 2019

There are few places as magnificent and varied as Brazil. On the one hand, it has been blessed with the most beautiful beaches and breathtaking natural wonders, on the other hand, it has produced visionary architects such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lucio Costa and Affonso Reidy who have made Brazilian modernism world-renowned. In addition to designing acclaimed buildings such as the Ministry of Health and Culture and the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, these visionaries planned the modernist city of Brasilia from the ground up.

Our journey takes us to the three major Brazilian cities - Sao Paulo, Brasilia & Rio de Janeiro - each one known for its architectural and cultural peculiarity. The local architect Barbara Iseli from our Guiding Architects network partner Insight Architecture will lead this 9 day long architectural journey in English.

Take a look at the detailed program!
