AFONSO REIDY - GÁVEA RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX


Afonso Reidy - Gávea Residential Complex, Rio de Janeiro RJ, Brazil (1954)

This building might be the more orthodox project from this selection; this modern project remembers us the radical urban projects by Le Corbusier, like Rio´s plan, where building, street and landscape are defined in a same movement
