Brazil: modernity as tradition
Pavilion of Brazil | 14th Architecture Biennale

By Federica Lusiardi, Inexhibit

There are few countries that metabolised modern architecture fundamentals as much as Brazil did, so that, despite the existence of a “traditional architecture”, this is not actually considered the real Brazilian architecture while the modern one instead is.

The pavilion of Brazil at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale depicts 100 years of evolution of a country that also brought a great contribution to the history of architecture. Nevertheless such contributions have often been underestimated by the criticism and wrongly considered as “anomalies” or exceptions not really reflecting the actual situation of Brazil.
Now that the nation has to face the challenges of globalisation, its architecture needs again to evolve so to give a proper reply to the requirements of sustainability and to the huge urban development process it is currently experiencing.
