By Marcos Barinas Uribe on June 15, 2007
Format: Paperback
Este libro es un catalogo de los mas afamados y no tan afamados arquitectos brasileiros. Como todo catalogo nos deja con el deseo de ver mas, pero de repente para eso sirven los catalogos. Sin embargo, me deja con el vacio de entender el contexto en que se insertan todas estas obras y las practicas profesionales de quienes la producen.
