Her iconic Museum of Art of Sao Paulo (1968), and the bold, Social Service for Commerce Building-Pompeia, Sao Paulo (1986), have gained recognition in recent years and her reputation is beginning to be acknowledged internationally.

Sao Paulo, 1957), a seminal text, published in Portuguese by the Italo-Brazilian Bo Bardi. It is arguably the first published writing on architecture theory by a practicing woman architect. Accompanying the translation is an introductory essay that interprets Bo Bardi s text as a critical and constructive theory of architecture built from a collection of textual and visual artifacts.This translation clearly renders Bo Bardi s work in English, and contextualizes it theoretically, taking into account the specific historical sources and contemporaneous discourses from which it draws.

With comparisons to other important architectural pedagogies and theoretical texts of the period, it is also an inquiry into the nature of architecture history and theory, its role in education and its relation to practice.
