"Lina Bo Bardi: Together" at the DAZ Berlin

If you are in Berlin in August, make sure to check out the exhibition “Lina Bo Bardi: Together” at The Deutsche Architecture Zentrum, dedicated to the legacy of the famed Italian-born Brazilian architect, and focusing on her “capacity to engage with every facet of culture and to see the potential in all manner of people.” More on the exhibition after the break.

Curated by Naomi Blager, the exhibition presents artworks by Madelon Vriesendorp (one of the founders of OMA and the wife of Rem Koolhaas), videos by Tapio Snellman and photographs of Bo Bardi’s Casa de Vidro (The Glass House) by Ioana Marinescu. Bo Bardi’s passion for people’s freedom took shape in her work as a designer, illustrator, curator, and architect; her integrity and creativity were inspired by her adopted heritage of Brazil and its people.

Bo Bardi’s integrity and desire for a lack of hierarchical division is portrayed in the eclectic nature of the exhibition: artifacts found in local Brazilian markets alongside carefully crafted objects; films shot in Bo Bardi’s Pompéia project in São Paulo are projected into a reflective pool of water. The interactive installation, consisting of various-sized concrete blocks, pays tribute to Bo Bardi’s playful use of the material and was designed by the London-based Assemble Studio. It is accompanied by three Bowl Chairs, designed by Bo Bardi in 1951.
