The Humanist Woman

Lina Bo Bardi

Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) was an incredibly prolific architect and designer who devoted her working life, most of it spent in Brazil, to promoting the social and cultural potential of architecture and design.
Over the next 30 plus years, Bardi would participate in an astonishing number and variety of projects. She designed private homes (both exteriors and interiors), including her own São Paulo home, the Glass House (1951),an early example of the use of reinforced concrete in domestic architecture. Bardi also designed many public buildings, including office buildings, theaters, churches, and “leisure” or cultural centers such as the highly successful Pompéia Factory (1977). She was responsible for the design of several innovative new art museums, including the Modern Art Museum in São Paulo (1957-68).
