1116. MAM. Rio de Janeiro

Dear Lucio,

Brazilian architect Affonso Eduardo Reidy was born 
in France of a Brazilian-Italian mother, and an English father. Despite this circunstance his architecture is unmistakably Brazilian Modernist. His Rio de Janeiro Museum of Modern Art was intended to harmonize architecture with the natural landscape by stressing the horizontality of the building in contrast with the undulating line of the mountains. Inside the main 
building the entire ground floor with the exception of 
the entrance is completely free allowing an 
uninterrupted view of the sea.
