The study can be described as the one in which
“Structures were designed to complement the landscape and not vice-versa.”

It is a Former property of renowned Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, with lush grounds & artwork in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The site has a couple of structures, the architect's house, chapel, pergola and pavilion zone, Atelier (art gallery), Loggia (semi-open arcade that the architect used as art-making space)

The remaining site of 400 thousand sq.m. has rich vegetation with 3,500 species of Tropical and subtropical plants found out of which most of them are Brazilian native.
53 species named after him can be seen here!

Peculiar features of landscape design are -
A pop of color in the landscape to drive focus
The layering of heights of plants to create foreground, midground & background.
Texture arrangement to make spaces look larger or smaller.
Using colors to define vivid moods and emotions in users in different zones

A great place to study and experience the landscape in its raw, natural yet manicured form.
