   schema:description "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."@en ;
