Description


A stunning 368-page architecture monograph on the daring Italian-Brazilian modernist

The Italian-Brazilian architect and designer Lina Bo Bardi (1914-92) forged a unique path with her bold, modern designs. Spanning architecture, stage design, fashion and furniture, her work drew inspiration from the International Style, which she translated into her own visual language. Fundamental to her work was her thoughtful engagement with her adopted country of Brazil--its culture, society, politics and indigenous design traditions--and her ideas about the social possibilities of design, and she expressed her sometimes radical views in her design work, exhibitions and writings. Published on the occasion of Lina Bo Bardi's hundredth birthday, this richly illustrated volume presents an overview of her oeuvre and highlights her iconic buildings: her home, the so-called Casa de Vidro, the Museo de Arte de S o Paulo and the cultural center SESC Pomp ia.
