Born in Rome in 1914, Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi moved to São Paulo in 1946, where she learned to integrate local building techniques and materials with modern architecture. Arguing ceaselessly for more and better public spaces in her adopted country, she designed landmarks like the São Paulo Museum of Art and masterpieces such as the 1951 Glass House, originally constructed to evoke a modernist dwelling in the middle of the jungle, while always emphasising the social and cultural role architects can play. Curated by the Pritzker-winning Kazuyo Sejima, this exhibit consists of drawings, photos, video and models that exemplify Bo Bardi's creative legacy.
