Lina Bo Bardi (b. 1914, Rome – d.1992, São Paulo) was an Italian-born Brazilian architect, furniture designer, set designer, and journalist whose work combines a Modernist sensitivity with a profound commitment to social responsibility. After graduating in architecture in Rome, she began her career in Gio Ponti's studio in Milan. When Bo Bardi lost her studio to an aerial bombardment in 1943 she became an activist of the Italian Communist Party, subsequently moved to Brazil. Her iconic architectural projects include the Glass House, built in 1951 in Morumbi, São Paulo, Brasil, São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP) designed in 1968, the SESC Pompeia
Factory built in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1977–86 and the Casa do Benin designed in Salvador de Bahia in 1988.
