If you've ever been lucky enough to stroll the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, you'll likely have noticed Roberto Burle Marx's curving mosaic walkway which hugs the sand down by Copacabana.
The trippy, wave-like design of Avenida Atlântica is perhaps the most famous work of Brazil's esteemed horticultural artist, but his architectural oeuvre also includes thousands of unique gardens and landscapes.
The botanical gardens of Brazilian Modern: The living art of Roberto Burle Marx are a thriving tribute to Marx's bold designs, vibrant artwork, and dedication to plant conservation. The largest ever New York Botanical Gardens exhibition is alive with palms, cycads, aroids, bromeliads and other lush greenery.
Among the many exotic plants and beautiful sculptural features, Marx's vivid paintings, drawings and textiles come to life. Feel his obsession with the natural world as you walk his signature calçadas, and explore the passion he had for preserving the native ecosystems of a country ravaged by deforestation.
