Precise poetry - Lina Bo Bardi’s architecture is a film about famous Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi, who created poetry through architectural precision. Told in a series of interviews in Portuguese with English subtitles on the eve of her 100th birthday, Bo Bardi's colleagues and friends recount the socio-political constraints and personal events that would lead to the timelessness of her work. This cinematic journey through her most important architectural projects in São Paulo and Salvador da Bahia poses the question of what remains of a person in the work they leave behind.
Belinda Rukschcio received a degree in fashion design in Vienna and studied architecture at the Vienna University of Technology. In complement to her work as an architect, she worked as a project manager in Broadcasting Architecture. Her emphasis is on sociocritical issues and their interpretation and depiction in architecture and design. Since 2009, Belinda Rukschcio has worked in an academic capacity at universities including the Vienna University of Technology, the Bauhaus University in Weimar, and currently at the BTU Cottbus. She released her first documentary, Precise Poetry – Lina Bò Bardi's Architecture, in 2013. She lives and works in Berlin.
