Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) was one of the most prolific and visionary architects of the twentieth century. Raised in Italy under Mussolini’s Fascist regime and emigrating to Brazil after World War II, she championed the power of architecture and design to transform society. Her boldly modernist designs range from concrete-and-glass structures like the São Paulo Museum of Art and her distinctive residence in São Paulo—the Casa de Vidro, or Glass House—to furniture and jewelry.
This is the first book to examine one of the most intimate and expressive aspects of her life and work, but one she rarely shared with the public—drawing.
Zeuler Rocha Lima is an architect and associate professor of history, theory, and design at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. He is the author of Lina Bo Bardi and the coauthor of Albert Frey and Lina Bo Bardi: A Search for Living Architecture.
