Inspiration | Roberto Burle Marx
The Roberto Burle Marx Site tears away the boundaries between the material and the immaterial heritage, between popular and high art; it is a testimony that in real life, nature and culture, architecture and natural, urban and rural landscape are much more intertwined than often imagined. The Roberto Burle Marx performance in the world, creating and inspiring gardens and many other works, having its roots in one place in Barra de Guaratiba (RJ), shows that the local and global are intrinsically articulated. It can be said that “The whole world fit on the site”.
