In the Palmeiras district of Sao Paulo, early 20th century former factory-workshops are aligned with strange blocks of cement that stand tall, facing the city and its towers.

The building is a social and cultural centre for employees. Its architect, Lina Bo Bardi, preferred to refer to it as a "citadel of leisure", a symbol, both of the reconversion of work premises and the affirmation of an Alternative, in front of the city. It is a major architectural example of "Architettura Povera".
