DailyLand: Roberto Burle Marx

The New York Times featured a great retrospective of the work of Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx. Check out the article and slideshow. Many in the realms of landscape architecture have been influenced by the bold geometry of his designs, as well as the urban integration of landscape into the consciousness of urban dwellers. “…But the thing about him that really stands out is that he regarded landscape design as an equal partner with architecture, not as a backdrop or decoration, and elevated it to that level.”
