Architecture+Design Film Festival: Precise Poetry/ Lina Bo Bardi’s Architecture

Sun, Apr 17 / 2 pm
Directed by Belinda Rukschcio
2014, Austria/Germany/Brazil, 55 min
Portuguese w/ English subtitles

Followed by a Panel Discussion with Dr. Carlos Rueda and Dr. Eduardo Aquino, University of Manitoba.

The life and work of Italian-Brazilian architect, Lina Bo Bardi (b.1914-d.92), will surprise anyone unaware of her achievements. Through insightful interviews with friends and colleagues, we come to recognize Lina’s courage and charm embodied in the dramatic gestures of her built works, just as it becomes clear her intentions were directed less toward self expression, and more toward making cultural institutions to embolden, inspire and protect her adopted population. Featured projects include the paradoxically modest but structurally daring São Paulo Museum of Art (1957-68), and the whimsically monumental community “leisure” center,  SESC Pompéia (1977-86)—the collective
and in situ design for which participated in a “revolution in the modus operandi of contemporary architectural practice.” Whether we call her work modern, or post-modern, the best way to understand Bo Bardi’s architectural intentions, methods, and results,is as a kind of living poetry.
