This collection of essays is the first-ever English anthology of Lina Bo Bardi’s writings. It includes texts written when she was still living in Italy as well as later contributions to a number of Brazilian newspapers, journals and magazines.

Essay / Literature, Modern Architecture
An acute critic and a creative thinker, Bo Bardi proposes a series of new parameters for design thinking and practice, such as the notions of ‘historical present’, ‘roughness’ and ‘tolerance to imperfection’. Presented collectively, her texts present a wealth of inspirational thoughts articulated in a refreshingly simple, straightforward fashion.

Lina Bo Bardi was an Italian-born Brazilian modernist architect. A prolific architect and designer, she devoted her working life, most of it spent in Brazil, to promoting the social and cultural potential of architecture and design.
