Summary note
A careful rereading of the avant-garde in Brazil by inserting the architect Gregori Warchavchik in a triangle of forces with Mario de Andrade and Lúcio Costa, as the vertices modernism in Brazil. The multiple branched trajectory Warchavchik allows a glimpse of the fundamental chapters of the cultural history of Brazilian architecture, the intellectual debates of vanguard, the figure of the immigrant in an affluent society, the new project work routines and the social and economic plots of land that became the metropolis of Sao Paulo. The issue features more than 350 images, between photos, documents and projects that accompany the biography of Warchavchik, born 1896 of Ukrainian roots, through his artistic training at Italy, until his arrival in 1923 to Brazil, where he was an active architect until the 1960s. Reconstructs the diverse contexts in which architecture intersected during the modernist period.
