“See lots of architecture… Get full of it.”
Albert Frey

“Architecture is a continuous adventure, human and real.”
Lina Bo Bardi

Color. Shape. Composition. The Bestor Architecture exhibition design for “Living Architecture” takes joy in the building blocks in which Lina Bo Bardi and Albert Frey took joy. It brings the sensibilities of the two modernist architects to life and juxtaposes their parallel approaches to connecting people and environments through architecture. It emphasizes the cultural/ecological dialogue, formal play, and material sensuousness intrinsic to Bo Bardi’s designs. It recognizes Albert Frey’s lifestyle vision for an integration of the technological and natural. It brings Bo Bardi’s and Frey’s humanism to the gallery.
