Just up the hill from the Glass House is the Capelo de Morumbi, which we were encouraged to visit while waiting for a guided tour. Weirdly – I can scarcely believe it – it was built in 1950 to the design of Gregori Warchavchik, a Ukrainian who was trained in Rome and arrived in Brazil in 1923 full of the joys of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe and where he published a manifesto on ‘Futurism ?’ in 1925. In 1927, he designed the first modernist house in São Paulo. So, what is it ? A piece of radical historical revivalism ? A jeu d’esprit ?
