Lina Bo Bardi: Material Ideologies Conference

Lina Bo Bardi: Material Ideologies
A conference organized by Women in Design and Architecture at Princeton University School of Architecture
Betts Auditorium
Princeton University School of Architecture

Lina Bo Bardi: Material Ideologies presents new perspectives on Bardi as an architect, designer, writer, and activist, among many other things, to engage recent interest and discourse surrounding her work. Whether tectonic or conceptual, social and political agendas are latent in Bardi’s architectural materials, a theme that informs each conference panel: from her application of concrete, to the implementation of nature in schemes, and her reuse of vernacular materials.

Organized by Women in Design and Architecture (WDA) at Princeton University School of Architecture, this annual conference celebrates the work and legacy of a pivotal female architect or designer with contributions from international historians and scholars, in addition to artists and curators.
