Sitio Roberto Burle Marx

Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) was a Brazilian artist now best known as a designer of gardens. He was famous both for his modernist temper – his garden designs were collected and hung as abstract paintings – and his use of tropical plants unknown to the famous garden builders of Europe or Japan.

Perhaps his most beautiful garden is the Sitio Roberto Burle Marx, his former home in Rio, now a museum.

The grounds of this estate measure about 41 acres, most of it garden.

Looks like an amazing place.
