Architecture Photography: Lina Bo Bardi's 'Sesc Pompeia'

The designer and photographer Fernando Pires has completed a photographic series on Sesc Pompéia, one of Lina Bo Bardi's most significant works.

The photographer's series explores that symmetry in Bo Bardi's brutalist design, in which two colors, red and concrete-gray, unite harmoniously.
