Title:From Brazil to Pretoria: The Second Wave of the Modern Movement

Young Pretoria architects bridged the disparity between the austere International Style of the orthodox Moderns arid the Brazilian Second Wave, forging an acceptance of Modern architecture by public and patrons alike. Gus Gerneke presents that crucial contribution to the South African cultural patrimony.
