One of the most important architects of the twentieth century, Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992) was remarkably prolific and intriguingly idiosyncratic. A participant in the efforts to reshape Italian culture in her youth, Bo Bardi immigrated to Brazil in 1946, where her practice evolved within the social and cultural realities of her adopted country. While she continued to work with industrial materials, she added simple building techniques and naturalistic forms to her designs, striving to create large, multiuse spaces that promoted public life.

Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of the architect's life and work. Author Zeuler Lima, the leading authority on Bo Bardi, presents her activities on two continents, examining how ethical and social considerations influenced her intellectual engagement with modern architecture and providing an indispensable guide to her writings and her experimental, iconic designs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lima does a masterful job of candidly assessing his brilliant, somewhat erratic, and not always truthful subject. This important contribution to the literature will long remain the essential Bo Bardi publication."-Martin Filler, New York Review of Books -- Martin Filler * New York Review of Books *
"Niemeyer aside, Latin American architecture has received far too little attention in the US, so this scholarly monograph on Lina Bo Bardi (1914-92) is especially welcome."-Michael Webb, Form -- Michael Webb * Form *

"Zeuler Limar's book on Lina Bo Bardi, the once overlooked genius of mid-20th-century Brazil, is exceptionally fine."-Rowan Moore, The Observer

-- Rowan Moore * The Observer *
"Zeuler R.M. de A. Lima has astutely navigated the complexity of Bo Bardi's life and crafted a deeply researched yet highly pleasurable book."- John Hill, Designers & Books -- John Hill * Designers & Books *
"An excellent reference. The culmination of 10 years of research, Lima's readable biography-cum-monograph skillfully elucidates Bo Bardi's life and career starting with her early years in Rome."-Architectural Record * Architectural Record *
