The Brazilian Garden


about the brazilian garden

The Kathleen and Scott Kapnick Brazilian Garden celebrates the rich biodiversity of Brazil's flora. The seven terrestrial ecosystems found in Brazil each have their place in the garden, allowing guests to see plants in an ecological context so that they can better understand these environments.

The interplay between people and plants is also featured in this garden - from the indigenous peoples' use of plants to the art of landscape design. The garden is bold and distinctively Brazilian, a tribute to Roberto Burle Marx, known internationally as the "father of modern landscape architecture." Its centerpiece is the only original Burle Marx ceramic mural in the United States.
