About the media library

The Media Library hosts a specialised Film Archive, with more than 1,000 audiovisual files, representing a unique platform in Europe for the study, dissemination and revaluation of architectural audiovisual works, through the digitisation, preservation and exhibition of existing audiovisual collections, facilitating their registration and safekeeping.

The Media Library also hosts a Filmography section, which brings together more than 4,000 existing audiovisual records, both from its own collection and from the audiovisual collections of Professional Associations of Architects and Schools of Architecture in Spain. Through collaboration agreements with these entities, the Arquia Foundation agrees to digitalise a selection of their collections for online viewing in the Film Archive, as well as the registration of all their titles in the Filmography section, thus contributing to the preservation of their collections and the promotion of architectural culture and research.

She is one of the most unique voices of twentieth-century architecture. From her status as an architect in Brazil, a country, foreign at first, and then passionately her own, Bo Bardi knew how to adapt the aesthetic modernity learned in her native Italy to serve the public.
