This is the SESC Pompéia by Lina Bo Bardi (1977), which I just saw over at Victor’s blog.

“With  this steel barrel factory/”culture factory” conversion, Lina Bo Bardi  revolutionized São Paulo’s attitude to its obsolete industrial estates.

Between 1977 and 1986, the old brick sheds were transformed into exhibition spaces, a library and a series of workshops. The SESC Pompéia also features a curious and interesting theater (home to many  superb concerts), as well as a choperia the serves up a collective lunch  alongside inexpensive but equally delicious portions of beer and live  Brazilian music.

Bo Bardi also built two new buildings that are connected to the  factory by footbridges. These are entirely made from rough  concrete—alleviated by amoeba-shaped windows the architect referred to  as “Spanish civil war holes”—and contain sports facilities like football  fields, a swimming pool and a solarium. Both the “Spanish civil war  holes” and the general redesign of the old factory exemplify “muxarabi”,  a postmodern remix of colonial-style elements that foregrounds  references to Brazilian popular culture.” (words from here)

    This nearly gave me a heart attack. The brutalist influences are so blatant, the building so strong, so defined, it...

    Wow, actually been here. Wish the YMCA in the US was as cool as SESC in Brazil.
