casa-de-vidro

The beautiful Casa de Vidro, a 1951 modernist masterpiece in Morumbi, São Paulo, Brazil. It was the home of the architect Lina Bo Bardi, who also built São Paulo’s astonishing MASP art museum, and conjured SESC Pompeia from a former factory.

I’ve written about the Casa de Vidro in our English-language blog at Folha de S.Paulo this week - Concrete and jungle: São Paulo’s Glass House.
