Holston, James

SUMMARY

The utopian design and organization of Brasília--the modernist new capital of Brazil--were meant to transform Brazilian society. In this sophisticated, pioneering study of Brasília from its inception in 1957 to the present, James Holston analyzes this attempt to change society by building a new kind of city and the ways in which the paradoxes of constructing an imagined future subvert its utopian premises. Integrating anthropology with methods of analysis from architecture, urban studies, social history, and critical theory, Holston presents a critique of modernism based on a powerfully innovative ethnography of the city.Holston, James is the author of 'Modernist City An Anthropological Critique of Brasilia', published 1989 under ISBN 9780226349794 and ISBN 0226349799.
