El ceramista brasileño Francisco Brennand le impuso este carácter al edificio Bacardi en Miami.
Quienes hacen así de bello el mundo, en su faceta de trabajo humano, ¿irán a un paraíso especial?
The tower is built of reinforced concrete, overlayed with two huge 'azulejos', or ceramic tile murals done in the traditional Spanish colors of blue and white, by Francisco Brennand of Recife, Brazil. Born July 11, 1927, Brennand is an accomplished painter-ceramicist, whose other works include murals at the School of Itanhaem at Sao Paulo, a 32-meter mural of the Battle of Guararapes for the Banco da Lavoura de Minas Gerais, and the interior of a ballroom for the Sao Domingos Hotel in Recife. The Bacardi tower murals are made of 28,000 hand-painted, glazed, baked, 6" x 6" tiles surrounded by a marble border. Brennand felt strongly that painters and architects should work together to give buildings an artistic unity. In fact, Brennand stresses the word "overlay" rather than "decorate", to underscore his belief in the combined unity of the final work.extraído de aesthetic journal.
