Bo Bardi's work prizes simplicity, spontaneity, the residual and the ephemeral - incorporating everydayness and the energy of the people who use it. She used the word 'substances', rather than 'materials', to explain what her architecture was made of - air, light, nature, and art. Her work is presented here via a huge array of previously unpublished drawings, images, writings and projects that enable the reader to grasp in a kaleidoscopic way the power and current importance of her architecture as a critical confrontation with established reality.
