Sustainable Lina – Book Launch

2 November 2016 | 18:30

Professor Steffen Lehmann, of the faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries at the University of Portsmouth, and Annette Condello have released a new book, Sustainable Lina, following and exploring the work of modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi and taking a close look at the potential for a sustainable future.
The book launch will take place on November 2nd, at AA Bookshop in London.

Dr Fabiano Lemes de Oliveira, of UoP, states, “This essential book unravels the link between regional cultures, adaptive reuse of existing buildings and sustainability. It concentrates on the social dimensions relating to Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi’s late adaptive reuse projects and works from the 1960s to the early 1990s, interpreting her themes, technical sources and design strategies of the creation of luxury as sustainability.

“The edited book charts how Lina Bo Bardi “invented” her own version of sustainability, introduced this concept through her landscape and adaptive reuse designs and through ideas about cross-cultures in Brazil. The book offers a critical reflection, exploration and demonstration of the importance of adaptive reuse in the landscape and related themes for researchers and provides researchers and students new material on sustainability for further study.”
