W is for Warchavchik
Itapolis Residence, Sao Paulo
Gregori Warchavchik, a contemporary of Lucio Costo, built a variety of structures in Sao Paulo Brazil, in what was then the Latin interpretation of Modernity. Having been credited in constructing the first Modernist building in Brazil, the aesthetic of Warchavchik was born out of function, albeit what was en vogue. His work however breathed an understanding of the South American climate that was created by a social resistance and deemed vital for the movement's acceptance and development.
