One of the most important figures in Brazilian material culture, José Zanine Caldas (1919-2001) left behind a diverse legacy in architecture, design and art. His oeuvre includes maquettes built for architecture, industrial and handcrafted furniture, sculpture, landscaping and floriculture, low-income and elite housing designs, and research on the use and reuse of Brazilian woods. Much of Caldas’ aesthetic was based on his dialogue with vernacular craft and its construction practices, which stemmed in part from his lack of a traditional education.
