I hope Le Blanc touches on this. From "Tropical modernisms: art and architecture in Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s," her 2011 dissertation: "Equal in importance to the specific changes taking place in these arenas was the collaborative ethos of the period. Artists, graphic designers, architects, landscape designers and filmmakers, among others, worked with each other and across traditional disciplinary boundaries, experimenting with a wide variety of materials and methods. As a result, many visual artists migrated between media, experimenting with painting, photography, graphic design, and three-dimensional forms, which included sculpture, installation works and architecture."
