Concrete Jungle - Tropical Architecture
Die Gestalten Verlag


The clash of rational architecture with the organic lushness of tropical vegetation has created some of the most visionary and futuristic buildings we know. In this title we embark on a journey through the works of architects influenced by the tropical modernist style, from Luis Barragán to Paulo Mendes da Rocha to Marcio Kogan.

Based on the concepts of Modernist style and Bauhaus aesthetics, tropical countries like Brazil or Mexico have developed their own highly unique visions.This title captures an international style and an architecture both timeless and desirable that continues to be highly influential around the globe.
