SYMPOSIUM: Lina Bo Bardi 100 (copy 1)

13. November 2014, 9:30 am

Recent research on the work of Lina Bo Bardi will be the focus of a scholarly symposium, that will take place during the opening of the exhibition "Lina Bo Bardi 1OO" on November 13th, 2014 in the Ernst von Siemens-Auditorium of the Pinakothek der Moderne. International speakers from Brazil, USA and Europe will come together to discuss Lina Bo Bardi's work. The focus will be the reflection of her design methodologies, her theoretical interests and her effective implementation in the practice of architecture.

The Symposium will analyze the little explored aspects of her work including her exhibition practices, her architecture and her theoretical writings dealing with the concepts of modernism in architecture. Together with the audience, questions regarding Lina Bo Bardi’s work will be explored: Why is interest in the Italian-Brazilian architect piquing only now? What influence does her work hold as an alternative path to modernity for younger generations? And what lessons can today’s architects learn from her anthropological pursuits? These topics, questions of the complex personality Lina Bo Bardi and her recontextualized role as an architect will be explored during the Symposium.
