concrete and poetry

In the first UK exhibition to explore the vision of the architect Lina Bo Bardi, the Henry Moore Institute focuses on her drawings for the iconic Museum of Art in São Paolo (MASP), designed and built between 1957 and 1968. The exhibition presents drawings from the Instituto Bo Bardi which explore her ideas for the exterior and interior of MASP, including displays for the art collection as well as the ways in which the whole site might be used as a public space. Bo Bardi did not make finished architect’s plans, instead creating informal and spontaneous drawings, incorporating pencil, pen, watercolour and collage, which give a unique insight into her creative process and show a monumental building humanised by people, plants and sculptures.
