An entire "heroic" phase of Brazilian architecture, with significant works by Oscar Niemeyer, Lina Bo Bardi, and others, was impacted by the Brazil's increasing cultural isolation. Mendes da Rocha's work was not recognised internationally until the 1990s, which led to a "rediscovery" of this house as a kind of manifesto. Its brutalist reinforced concrete surfaces and structural simplicity resonate with history in this series of photographs by Yukio Futagawa.
