contributed by Adam_Gebrian

This project used to be a factory complex, located in São Paulo. Between 1977 and 1982, it was converted into a multi-purpose building by Lina Bo Bardi, a collaboration between Italian architects Lina Bo and P.M. Bardi. It now houses one of the units of SESC, a private, non-profit organization which promotes cultural and educational activities all over Brazil. The SESC Pompéia complex became hugely successful, and now contains theatres, gymnasiums, a swimming pool, snack bars, leisure areas, restaurants, galleries, workshops and other kind of services.
