A Brazilian Odyssey: The Gardens of Roberto Burle Marx

February 17–27, 2019

This special tour focuses on the unique gardens and public works of the late Roberto Burle Marx. Starting in Rio de Janeiro, the ‘Marvelous City,’ we visit some of Marx’s best public and private gardens, including his own magical estate and studio near Rio and properties rarely open to visitors. We also see fine examples of his work in the mountains around Petropolis, in Belo Horizonte and in Brasilia, a Mecca for Modernist architecture and design enthusiasts. In putting together this unique tour, we have worked closely with the Burle Marx office in Rio. They have helped us gain access to gardens seldom seen except in photographs. It represents a rare opportunity to see some of Marx’s most exciting and renowned designs, many of which may not be accessible for much longer owing to the increasing cost of maintenance.
