At a special event organised in partnership with Central Saint Martins, Laura Smith, Lina Bo Bardi Fellow 2014, will present the outcomes of her research following a 6-week trip to Brazil at the end of 2014. This event will especially benefit those planning to apply for the Fellowship in 2015.

    The Lina Bo Bardi Fellowship is a 4-year programme run by the British Council that gives architects and designers based in the UK the opportunity to travel and explore first-hand the work and legacy of Lina Bo Bardi and related architects and designers in Brazil. Laura’s research focused primarily on the impact that Brazilian popular culture has had on Bo Bardi’s work. Laura’s research was centred around Bo Bardi’s designed works through drawings and making in order to reveal the architect’s design process, intent and influences. Since her trip, Laura has been prototyping a scaled version of Lina’s Solar do Unhão staircase and she will present the work to date at the event.
