Lina Bo Bardi is an icon of modernist architecture in Brazil. Although born in Italy, she moved to São Paulo in 1946 because it had a profound effect on her creative thinking. While becoming a naturalized citizen in 1951, she completed her first project which also served as her home, the “Glass House”, in a town south of São Paulo. The house is now a national architectural monument and is known for its refined details and the use of items associated with advanced manufacturing techniques and for being an “open house. The vertical structure of the house is composed of steel tubes, with slabs and other structural elements of reinforced concrete. Lina Bo bardi is also famous for designing the São Paulo Museum of Art, of which her husband Pietro Maria Bardi was curator.
