Isay Weinfeld, An Architect from Brazil
Edited and published by Gestalten Verlag in Berlin, 2017.
From one side of the globe to the other, Isay Weinfeld is one of the most sought-after architects of our contemporary era. An inimitable force in the realm of combining modern elegance with tropical vibrancy, Weinfeld thinks of a building as a complete artwork that needs to be not just functional but beautiful.
Isay Weinfeld is a volume dedicated to an architect who rarely discusses his own work. It features over 50 iconic projects. Spotlighting Weinfeld’s most outstanding feature as a Brazilian visionary, this title highlights the creative communication between architect and commissioner.
