Albert Frey and Lina Bo Bardi: A Search for Living Architecture

September 9th, 2017 – January 7th, 2018

Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center

Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) emigrated from Italy to Brazil in 1946 and Albert Frey (1903–1998) from Switzerland to the United States in 1930. Though the two did not meet, Bo Bardi translated Frey’s treatise In Search of a Living Architecture for Domus, and their personal and professional odysseys are representative of the emergence of São Paulo and Southern California as architectural and cultural laboratories in the middle of the twentieth century. They each created modernist houses, furniture, public buildings, and approaches to urban design that moved beyond strict European rationalism to embrace the social and environmental contexts specific to their adoptive homes in the Americas. Bo Bardi and Frey shared a belief in architecture as a way to connect people, nature, building, and living.
