Stones against diamonds by Lina Bo Bardi( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 98 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
Lina Bo Bardi : obra construida : built work by Olívia Fernandes de Oliveira( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 69 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
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 53 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

Lina Bo Bardi : the theory of architectural practice by Lina Bo Bardi( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The architect, Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), has long been considered one of the major modern architects of the twentieth century in Brazil. The Glass House (1951), a residence for herself and her husband, gained wide acclaim, appearing in architectural periodicals throughout 1953-54. Her iconic Museum of Art of São Paulo (1968), and the bold, Social Service for Commerce Building-Pompéia, São Paulo (1986), have gained recognition in recent years and her reputation is beginning to be acknowledged internationally. Bo Bardi's major writings on architecture, however, have not been translated, and are not well known. This book contains the first English-language translation of Propeadeutic Contribution to the Teaching of Architecture Theory, (Habitat, Ltd. São Paulo, 1957), a seminal text, published in Portuguese by the Italo-Brazilian Bo Bardi. It is arguably the first published writing on architecture theory by a practicing woman architect. Accompanying the translation is an introductory essay that interprets Bo Bardi's text as a critical and constructive theory of architecture built from a collection of textual and visual artifacts. This translation clearly renders Bo Bardi's work in English, and contextualizes it theoretically, taking into account the specific historical sources and contemporaneous discourses from which it draws. With comparisons to other important architectural pedagogies and theoretical texts of the period, it is also an inquiry into the nature of architecture history and theory, its role in education and its relation to practice"--Résumé de l'éditeur

"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 100 : Brazil's alternative path to modernism by Lina Bo Bardi( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 São Paulo and the cultural center SESC Pompéia

Lina Bo Bardi, 1914-1992 by Lina Bo Bardi( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The centenary of Lina Bo Bardi, born in Rome in 1914, has rekindled the fervour for her life and oeuvre. For many years, her role in 20th century architecture remained undervalued, but recent recognition of her strong multicultural character and new interest in Brazil as an emerging geopolitical powerhouse have combined to once more bring her work into the spotlight. Educated in Italy, she moved to Brazil after World War II following a yearn to humanise architecture, building for peoples' everyday needs. This edition of the magazine closely examines her intense professional activity and lasting legacy through four critical essays and profiles of 20 exemplary projects

Lina Bo Bardi by Zeuler Rocha Mello de Almeida Lima( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992), one of the most important architects working in Latin America in the 20th century, was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil with her husband in 1946. In Brazil, her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials like concrete and glass, she added popular building materials and naturalistic forms to her design palette, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that welcomed public life. Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of Bo Bardi's career and showcases author Zeuler Lima's extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architect's activities on two continents and in five cities. The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics, and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardi's intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral, and iconic works of design

Concreto e cristal : o acervo do MASP nos cavaletes de Lina Bo Bardi = Concrete and crystal : MASP's collection on Lina Bo Bardi's easels( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Portuguese and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concrete and glass: MASP's collection on Lina Bo Bardi's easel records the revival of the iconic crystal easels, also called glass trestles, which were the expography designed by Lina Bo Bardi for the current headquarters of MASP Paulo Assis Chateaubriand), inaugurated in 1968. By removing the works from the wall and placing them on transparent glass supports supported by a concrete base, and freely scattering them through the monumental space of the institution, the architect sought to question the vision of the Museum as a privileged cultural space, giving the visitor the autonomy to decide their own course through the collection. Removed in 1996 on the pretext that they damaged the works, the easels were renovated and reincorporated into the assembly of the collection in December 2015, starting with the critical review and the resumption of the founding origins of the museum adopted by its new artistic director. Organized by Adriano Pedrosa and Luiza Proença, Concrete and Crystal: the MASP collection on the easels of Lina Bo Bardi brings together more than 300 images of the works of the collection exposed in the presentation of the new easels, alongside historical photographs of the original easels and related documents To the theme. The book also presents essays by different authors on crystal easels, which approach them from different perspectives, reflecting on their historical, conceptual and technical
