Bo Bardi, who died inwas strong-willed and passionate, as the unforgettable concrete castle shows. Their coming together is likely to involve some friction, but it’s worth the effort because it is this encounter that makes architecture worth having. Noemi Blager, the curator of the exhibition, says she “put people in the centre of the project”. The Brazil in which she worked was never rich and was often politically turbulent.

The moment of architectural perfection, when a building is officially completed, was of little interest to her. It is an architectural experience that combines creativity with great rigour, freedom with responsibility, richness with conciseness and an economy of means, poetry with ethics. The SESC is a non-governmental organisation linked to a national business federation, created in the s sec provide employees with health services and with sporting and cultural activities.

It achieves things often hoped for, such as the co-existence of high and low culture, chess, football and ballet, of old and young, of ambitious architecture and the everyday. Here Bo Bardi’s first move was to argue that the old factory should not be demolished, as had been planned, on the grounds that it was already informally colonised by some of the uses — such as barbecues and puppet theatres ljna which the new centre was intended to serve.

The “together” comes from a statement of hers about the importance of collaboration, and the show is a multiple effort.

Stated another way, is a building that sits between the intervention and invention Philippe Blanc. Factory elevation above Barao do Bananal. The draft proposes SESC Pompeia maintain clearance of the sheds, but suggests catalyze activities and revitalize the place. Over the years, vegetation has surrounded it, pompeis she knew it would, such that it has become a richer and more beautiful place than when first built.

You can eat in a popular canteen, and you can sunbathe on a boardwalk called “the beach”.

Sometimes violent, as in the concrete towers; sometimes delicate, as in the channels of rainwater running along the central street or in the wooden trellises on the windows. This is, moreover, a common practice; it was also the case with the SESC centres at Belenzinho, Pinheiros and Paulista, where they began using the space in an improvised way, even before the renovation or construction work.


The walkways, therefore, were not the result of a formal or arbitrary decision, but were a way in which sfsc project responded intelligently to the realities of the location.

Sixty years later, this statement still makes a good manifesto.

This, she said, is “unwavering, and shaped by a love of humanity”. This approach was a genuine revolution in the modus operandi of contemporary architectural practice. Assemble, the group of young not-quite-architects who made the Cineroleum and the Folly for a Flyover in London, have designed the installation that will make the British Council’s somewhat anonymous premises off the Mall into a corner of Brazil.

It was certainly something that seemed beyond the possible universe, unattainable by the hands of contemporary architects. It was a bomb, a shock.

The street sloped, enters the cultural and services, program leads the visitor to a reserved area, which mostly houses the pool and sports area. The functions of the old structure would be redesigned and manufacturing technology project become a modern project focused on popular applications like swimming pools, cafeteria, library, exhibition halls, sports facilities, etc.

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 were at the end of a year military dictatorship, which contributed to an architectural mediocrity mirrored in works that lay outside our own culture and reality.

One of her most beautiful creations is a wooden stair using techniques adapted from the making of ox carts. Bridges connect them, such that the journey from locker to court, usually a humdrum trip lined by lino and lit by fluorescent lights, is an event of urban drama, with the city spread out around you.

She then made it into a village assembly of spaces, enriched with things such as a shared hearth and a meandering, river-like length of water. Open for expression or creative process space is frequently invoked by architect at SESC Pompeia, theater dissolves traditional form of theater for opera and adapts to the requirements for the works that she represented.

I t’s an old story, the opposition between an architect’s vision and the wishes of the users of buildings. Who can have passed through there without experiencing an emotion, surprise, or sense of discovery — to mention three of lkna sensations that for me define good and true architecture? It was a form of architecture that evaded easy classification. She has also inspired an exhibition opening in London tomorrow, hosted by the British Council and sponsored by the furniture company Arper.

The barrier that would normally separate the virtual and the real did not exist; it was architecture made real, experienced in every detail. In the shuttering of the water tower casting burrs, also in mortar lining the interior walls is controlled.

Accompanying the existing volume of old cooperage, the architect added two vertical buildings attached to the factory by aerial walkways. The care taken to ensure that so many details of the old factory remained visible — whether on walls, floors, roofs and other structures, or in the new facilities — meant the space would begin its new life full of warmth and animation.

These are in fulfillment of the architect’s wish that art should be made at the museum as well as seen there. After all, architecture is an effective and necessary means of communication.

The works of Lina Bo Bardi certify a popular creation potential, giving space and voice to make it happen: The result is a seamless integration and continuity in activities, providing circulation spaces. Or you can simply sit and watch the passing scene, as you might in a park. One is a water tower and the other two house the sports courts and bars and changing rooms.

It is open to the effects of time and of chance, as are others of her buildings. We had an office inside the building itself; the project and the programme were formulated as an amalgam, joined and inseparable. On the other hand, attempts to build “what people want” have a way linq ending up being bland and uninspiring.
