Lina Bo Bardi is currently being rediscovered as one of the foremost visionary practitioners of living the unity of art, culture and society in the 20th century. Bo Bardi (born in Rome in 1914) was an architect, stage set designer, editor, illustrator, furniture designer, museum planner and curator of art and craft exhibitions. In 1946, Lina Bo Bardi moved to São Paulo. She succeeded in translating the roots of Brazilian culture into the language of modernism – overcoming the hierarchical relationship between art and craft, transcending disciplines and always proceeding toward the visionary goal of demonstrating to the people of her time their own individual potential and thereby opening up new spaces of experience, insight and social responsibility.
