The idea is to give the opportunity for architects and designers based in the UK to travel to Brazil to explore the work of Lina and other architects and designers, and to formulate ideas for a project to be pursued back in the UK. It’s taking place in October – November this year and, as well as a grant to fund the trip and accommodation, the awardee will be able to attend workshops at the school of Architecture in Sao Paolo, be granted access to the archives of Bo Bardi’s work, and speak with people who worked with her.

Featured Buildings by this Brazilian architect:

Art museum of São Paulo (MSAP), São Paulo, Brazil
Date built: 1969
The architect became famous for the ample spaces she sought to construct. Her basic design was used to build the São Paulo Museum of Art (also known as “MASP”), of which her husband Pietro Maria Bardi was curator, which was built between 1957-68. The Bardis became involved with the Museum after meeting the Brazilian journalist and diplomat Assis Chateaubriand. Chateaubriand, with P.M. Bardi’s curatorial insight, acquired a vast collection of art for MASP, including art works by Bosch, Mantegna, Titian and Goya. source: wikipedia

Centro de Lazer Fábrica da Pompéia, São Paulo, Brazil
Centro de Lazer Fábrica da Pompéia is now called the SESC Pompéia. The building had initially housed a drum factory and the architect was tasked with turning it into a community center. SESC Pompéia was built after a 20-year military dictatorship in Brazil that created architecture that did not mirror the Brazilian culture.
