Lina Bo Bardi’s 100thh birthday was marked by the publication of this richly illustrated volume that presents an all-encompassing survey on her life trajectory as a multi-faceted architect, designer, scenographer, fashion, cultural activist. The book includes texts and images contextualizing her most important works such as, La Casa de Vidrio, the Museo de Arte de São Paulo and the cultural center SESC Pompéia. Essential when trying to understand the life of Bo Bardi was her thoughtful engagement with her adopted country of Brazil. She immersed herself in the culture, society, politics and indigenous design traditions, engaging and promoting new social design possibilities, which she incorporated into her more commercial projects.
