Architecture and Acceptance in São Paulo

This summer I am traveling abroad doing research on women architects and their influence on Modern Architecture. My trip was financed by an award I won through the architecture school, the Paul Grootkerk Travel Award, and funds from my Presidential Scholarship. On Monday, I got back from my first location, São Paulo, Brazil, where I was studying three buildings designed by the Italian Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi! I went to Brazil with my girlfriend Bailey, who is doing her honors thesis on the LGBTQ+ experience around the world.
