Small towns files. Lina Bo Bardi Unbuilt
Keywords:History, representation, modern movement
Lina Bo Bardi designed three rural settlings in Brazil; they was unbuilt but defined with clear geometric shapes: the circle and the square. The first project, in 1951, was an urban plant constituted by the same type of low-cost houses and by two ‘undefined’ buildings; the second project, in 1965, had a morphological system formed by circular lots in which, in the “astroidi” curves, were smaller circular lots; the third project is based on the principle of circular lots on which insist square shape houses. The representation, into relationship between drawing and design, offers the history and the criticism new images of cities with digital models building episodes of the architectural history.
