title Sloping Façade Buildings in Brazilian Modern Architecture
source Architecture in Computro [26th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-7-2] Antwerpen (Belgium) 17-20 September 2008, pp. 61-68
summary Sloping façade buildings have been present throughout XXth century architecture, for different programs and in different countries. One of the first architects to use sloping façades was probably Frank Lloyd Wright, two early examples being Taliesin West (1937) and the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel at Florida Southern College (1938-41). In Brazilian Modern architecture sloping façades soon became a recurrent solution, the earlier examples being produced by architects Oscar Niemeyer, João V. Artigas and Affonso E. Reidy, possibly influenced by FLW, as suggested by Irigoyen (2002). The present research proposes that these buildings may have influenced other architects in Brazil and abroad. In order to confirm this hypothesis, a design process was modelled and a shape grammar was developed to describe a small corpus of buildings designed by these three architects in the 1940´s and 1950´s.
