Seen this way, a building is not very different from a sandcastle or a mud pie. With the enormous creativity that characterizes Lina Bo BardiBrazilian architect, the leisure center project SESC Pompeia Factory, rehabilitation and leisure center of an old factory barrels of oil embarking Sao Paulo.

The project is planned as aggregation; the context is understood as debris on which it intervenes. Stated another way, is a building that sits between the intervention and invention Philippe Blanc.

The works of Lina Bo Bardi certify a popular creation potential, giving space and voice to make it happen: The projects are an appropriation, digestion and proposal of a new bk local movement, Brazilian, from the incorporation of the people.

In this project Lina Bo Bardi decided to keep most of the complex as it was bi preserve the pomepia of the place.

The extension of the functional program that requires vertical integration and distance for two buildable spaces, suggesting no less effective simple solution, but the occupation of the airspace and robust gateways. The result is a seamless integration and continuity in activities, providing circulation spaces. The whole project shows an expressive austerity in material and formal condition, with a strong artistic expression.

In the shuttering of the water tower casting burrs, also in mortar lining the interior walls is controlled. On the walls of the towers were left in sight marks the horizontal and vertical tables and their primitive drilling. In the concrete walls of the volume that houses the courts of SESC can be read not only marks horizontal formwork tables, but also arrivals beams interior slabs and drilling scaffolds: We understand the quality of this translation is not excellent and we are working to replace these with high quality human translations.
