The house of artist Tomie Ohtake, in Sao Paulo.

The Japanese-Brazilian artist Tomie Ohtake arrived in Brazil in 1936 and soon felt in love with its tropical energy. In 1960, her son, the architect Ruy Ohtake, designed for her a brutalist building of 750 m², that was a manifesto to her poetic vision of life: a real monochrome concrete sculpture that enhanced hundreds of multicolored  art works and icon design furniture.
