University Press of Florida Publishes Fernando Lara's New Book
University of Florida Press will publish Fernando Luiz Lara's first book, The Rise of Popular Modernist Architecture in Brazil at the end of October. Fernando is assistant professor in architecture.
The publisher writes the book is that this "original and significant contribution to the field counters the traditional historiography of modernist architecture and has broad applicability in examining the importance of the style throughout Latin America." The Rise of Popular Modernist Architecture in Brazil serves as a bridge to understand the complexities of the location and context of popular modernism in Brazil, as well as how modern buildings labeled "popular modernist" really are. For information on the book, visit University Press of Florida.
Fernando will have a book signing and reception hosted by Shaman Drum Bookshop on November 11th. For more information on the event, visit our events page.
