A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the estate of Roberto Burle Marx, located about an hour south of Rio de Janiero.Â RBM was a well known Brazilian landscape architect, painter and ecologist. He used this property as a gardening and ecological laboratory for the plants he collected on trips deep into the jungles of South America. Later in life he moved to the property full time and built a large art/design studio.
Here is the link to his Wiki page.
NOTE: This is only 30 of the almost 200 pictures I took on the visit. If you would like to the rest of the photos please visit my Flickr page.
