Mapping the Pan-American Influences of Architect Arthur Casas

By Dwell @dwell
Arthur Casas exhibition at Espasso

For the exhibition Made in America, architect and designer Arthur Casas—who has studios in São Paulo and New York—brings the sights, scenes, and even the smells of his native Brazil to New York's Tribeca. Upon entering the space, visitors are greeted with a montage of scenses from Brazil projected over Casas's architectural drawings—and a signature scent created by cosmetics company Natura. The dramatic entrance does more than transport visitors to South America, it also gives a glimpse into the designer's process—as Casas points out, he still begins all his designs with a sketch by hand.  

Arthur Casas Made in America runs through March 27 at Espasso, 38 North Moore Street, New York.
