Lina Bo Bardi Profile

In December Lina Bo Bardi would reach the 100 years. Despite the obvious celebrations, stand out some exhibitions that show the different angles of this great architect. One of this is “A arquitetura política de Lina Bo Bardi”, that will be exhibited at Lina´s SESC Pompei, curated by Marcelo Ferraz and André Vainer, who collaborated with the project of the SESC back in the eighties. “A arquitetura política” shows several images by Leonardo Finotti, and will open today, together with “Lina gráfica”, also at the SESC. We take this opportunity to show you Lina Bo Bardi´s most important projects photographed by Finotti. By clicking on the image you will see 8 different essays, which show the broad range of buildings types, expressions and materialities of her intense trajectory.

Bernardes Arquitetura - House in Tijucopava, Guarujá SP, Brazil

Today´s newsletter features a new house designed by Bernardes Arquitetura. The project, a beach house, is located near Guarujá, in São Paulo state. The sloped site with amazing views and the hot weather led Bernardes to the main project decisions. A wooden screen protects the first floor which contains the bedrooms. The second floor, much lighter than the first one, houses master bedroom, the living and dining room, and a large terrace with pool that overlooks the sea scenery.
