roberto’s regard has been finding numerous ways of colourful translation, since landscape design gives room for a combination of disciplines. thats why it is not surprising that he is reffered to being a painter, as well as an architect and a botanist at the same time. what counts is the use of the elements.

his specific style had entered brazil in the early 50’s, shaping the given playfully and celebrating whats there – for a public to embrace
