The sidewalks of Copacabana in Rio De Janero, Brazil, designed by Roberto Burle Marx

Copacabana might just be the most famous beach in the world, and its promenade along the Rio de Janeiro seaside is certainly the most iconic there is. Here, Marx takes a cue from Portuguese pavement design with an undulating black-and-white pattern.

Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist runs from May 6 to September 18, 2016 at the Jewish Museum in New York.
