Lina Bo Bardi 100: Brazil's Alternative Path to Modernism


Published on the occasion of famed Italio-Brazilian architect and writer Lina Bo Bardi's 100th birthday, this richly illustrated volume presents an extensive overview of her oeuvre and highlights iconic buildings, such as her own home (the so-called Casa de Vidro), the Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo and cultural centre SESC Pompeia. The book also touches on her wider creative practice, which spanned architecture, stage sets, fashion and furniture, and drew inspiration from the International Style, which she translated into her own visual language and in-turn into Brazil's distinctive interpretation of modernistic ideas. Lina Bo Bardi 100: Brazil's Alternative Path to Modernism is published by Hatje Cantz/A.M.
