In this book architect João Diniz (b. Brazil) presents the possibilities of steel elements and structures in his architectural work in various scales and conceptual attitudes. His constructions are classified under: Complete, Hybrid and Artistic structures and Design and Citizens, a dialogue of urban designs and social needs. Among these categories Diniz presents designs and complete works for commercial towers; residences; buildings for academic, sporting and cultural purposes; sculptures, and street and domestic furniture. The book includes a presentation by Roberto Segre, the noted critic of Latin American architecture who comments : "João Diniz belongs in the avant-garde group who decided to rescue through architecture the environmental and cultural identity of Minas Gerais, characterized economically by sequence of mineral exploration, initially through gold in the colonial period, and in the 20th century through the iron and steel industry."--Front flap.
