The Reputations Live series continues at the Soane Museum on Wednesday 12 February, presenting architecture’s biggest influencers and agitators as featured in AR’s Reputations
The second series of Reputations Live will once again explore the most prominent, prolific and notorious architects from Sir John Soane’s day to our present age, as featured in the AR’s Reputations series, started in 2011.
In the sixth and final talk of the series, Rowan Moore, architecture critic at The Guardian and author of Why We Build, presents Lina Bo Bardi. The Brazilian Modernist’s work is celebrated for its punchy, honest concern for social good. Bo Bardi was a political activist, designer of furniture, temporary exhibitions and theatre sets, as well as an architect and each activity extended and informed the other.
