Zeuler R. Lima, Ph.D., Associate Professor will be launching his comprehensive artistic biography of architect Lina Bo Bardi (Yale University Press) with a lecture at the Collins/Kaufman series in Art History at Columbia University on Tuesday, November 26 at 6:30pm.
Lina Bo Bardi is the first comprehensive study of Bo Bardi’s career and showcases author Zeuler Lima’s extensive archival work in Italy and Brazil. The leading authority on Bo Bardi, Lima frames the architect’s activities on two continents and in five cities. The book examines how considerations of ethics, politics, and social inclusiveness influenced Bo Bardi’s intellectual engagement with modern architecture and provides an authoritative guide to her experimental, ephemeral, and iconic works of design.
