Stones against diamonds by Lina Bo Bardi ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) was a prolific architect, designer and thinker, whose work spans across architecture, furniture, stage and costume design, urban planning, teaching and writing. This collection of essays is the first-ever English anthology of her writings. It includes texts written when she was still living in Italy a well as later contributions to a number of Brazilian newspapers, journals and magazines. An acute critic and a creative thinker, Bo Bardi proposes a series of new parameters for design thinking and practice, such as the notions of 'historical present', 'roughness' and 'tolerance to imperfection'. Presented collectively, her texts present a wealth of inspirational thoughts articulated in a refreshingly simple, straightforward fashion
Subtle substances : the architecture of Lina Bo Bardi by Olivia de Oliveira ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and Portuguese and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lina Bo Bardi, the Rome-born architect, emigrated after World War Two to Brazil, a country where she undertook her professional career. The outcome of her personal experience and of a wish to get closer to the culture and ways of life of the people, Bo Bardi's creativity moved in the direction of an architecture that prized simplicity, spontaneity, the residual and the ephem-eral; an architecture understood as 'an organism suitable for life' which incorporated everydayness and the energy of the people who use it. As a result she used the word 'substances', rather than 'materials', to explain what her architecture was made of. These substances are air, light, nature and art, to which the author, Olivia de Oliveira, adds time. The work of Lina Bo Bardi, then, is presented here via a huge array of previously unpublished drawings, images, writings and projects that enable the reader to grasp in a kaleidoscopic way the power and current importance of her architecture as a critical confrontation with established reality. -- book cover

"A chronological catalog of the work of architect Lina Bo Bardi. The text, written by Bo Bardi in her unique style, describes her projects and reveals her personal philosophy and thoughts on various subjects including Brazil. Born and raised in Italy, she adopted Brazil as her home, restoring many buildings of historical interest and influencing a generation of architects, playwrights, moviemakers, and designers. Her life, projects, watercolors, photographs, and designs are richly documented here. Most of the catalog's illustrations were drawn from her archives"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Lina Bo Bardi : obra construida = built work by Olivia de Oliveira ( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The architect Lina Bo Bardi, who was born in Rome in 1914, emigrated in 1946 to Brazil, a country she adopted as her own and where she undertook her professional career. With its radical and modern focus, her entire work is pervaded by a wish to move closer to the way of life of the people and to local traditions by eliminating the distance between 'elite' and 'popular culture'. Her projects have a conceptual, material and ethical forcefulness that is particularly apparent in her built work, all of which is included in this volume, together with photographs taken especially for it by Nelson Kon. Olivia de Oliveira introduces us to the work of Lina Bo Bardi through a multifaceted argument that allows us to contextualise and understand it in all its architectural, cultural, political and social complexity. This book - a reprint of the magazine 2G Lina Bo Bardi - ends with a 1991 interview and a selection of her writings
