My ultimate dream house. "Casa de Vidro in Morumbi, São Paulo was designed by Brazilian modernist Architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1950.
The main part of the house is horizontal between thin reinforced concrete slabs with slender circular columns. The columns are pilotis, which allows the landscape to flow under the building. Inside, the main living area is almost completely open, except for a courtyard that allows the trees in the garden below to grow up into the heart of the house. In the house, there are zones allocated to different functions- a dining room, a library, and a sitting area around the freestanding fireplace- but all are unified by the forest views through the glass. In theory, the glass panels slide open horizontally, but there is no balcony to encourage people to go outside." quote from article "Glass House / Lina Bo Bardi," inArchEyes, August 15, 2016. #linabobardi #architecture
