The images in this exhibition were contributed to the Visual Resources Collection by Community and Regional Planning Ph.D. student Kristine Stiphany.
"The images explore the adaptation of modernist architecture to the socio-technical and biophysical conditions of the contemporary Brazilian city. Since the 1920s, a diverse set of actors—architects, engineers, and builders—have developed new approaches to a largely Eurocentric architecture, resulting in points of contact and divergence. The resulting hybrids challenge the contextual independence inherent in high modernist architecture and introduce strategies of environmental management, citizen involvement, public education, and integration of materials and methods endemic to Brazilian building culture." --Kristine Stiphany
