MMBB architects


A swimming pool, a library, a medical centre, a canteen, a cinema, a theatre, an exhibition space and spaces for dancing and sports — all stacked on 14 floors. MMBB architects, together with Pritzker Prize winner Paulo Mendes da Rocha, transformed a former department store in downtown São Paolo into the SESC 24 de Maio leisure centre with cultural and sports facilities. A passageway extends the public space into the interior of the building and extends to the swimming pool on the roof. The project provides inspiration in dealing with the increasing vacancy of commercial infrastructure, presenting an architecture of coexistence combining culture, social interaction and sports.

Lecture: Marta Moreira, MMBB Architects, Sao Paolo

Response: Heribert Wolfmayr & Josef Saller, heri&salli, Vienna

This time, IBA meets Architects features the architectural duo Flores & Prats. In 1924, the cooperative "Justícia i Pau" built a socio-cultural centre in Barcelona. From the 1980s, the building stood empty until it was given a new lease of life with the conversion by Flores & Prats.
