Celebrating the one-hundredth birthday of Brazil’s most important female architect and designer

The Italo-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) forged a unique path with her bold designs. Spanning architecture, stage sets, 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, and politics, and she productively and provocatively voiced her sometimes radical views through designs, exhibitions, and writings. On the oc­casion of Lina Bo Bardi’s one hundredth birthday, this richly illustrated volume presents an overview of her oeuvre and highlights iconic buildings, such as her own home, the so-called Casa de Vidro, the Museo de Arte de São Paulo, and the cultural center SESC Pompéia. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3852-1)
