Lina Bo Bardi (Born Achillina Bo on December 5, 1914 in Rome, Italy — Died March 20, 1992 in São Paulo) was a Brazilian modernist architect born in Italy.
After graduating in Rome, she began her career in the office of Giò Ponti in Milan before opening her own office. She did not have many commissions and, in 1943, her office was destroyed by aerial bombing. The event prompted her deeper involvement in the Italian Communist Party. She spent the years following the war documenting destruction across Italy, participating in the National Congress for Reconstruction. She also founded a weekly magazine, A Cultura della Vita, with Bruno Zevi. After the war she married Pietro Maria Bardi.
