Stones Against Diamonds (Architecture Words 12)


Publisher: Architectural Association Publications 2012 Author: Lina Bo Bardi ISBN: 9781907896200 Format: Softcover, 160pp, 180x110mm

This collection of essays is the first-ever English anthology of writings by the influential, Italian-born, Brazilian modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi.

It includes texts written when she was still living in Italy as well as later contributions to a number of Brazilian newspapers, journals and magazines.

An acute critic and a creative thinker, Bo Bardi proposes a series of new parameters for design thinking and practice, such as the notions of 'historical present', 'roughness' and 'tolerance to imperfection'.

Presented collectively, her texts present a wealth of inspirational thoughts articulated in a refreshingly simple, straightforward fashion.
