First Day in Sao Paulo

Somehow i did not expect Sao Paulo to be Latin New York. Jardins, a very cosmopolitan and sophisticated neighbourhood (where we were staying ) was close to MASP, a museum designed by Lina Bo Bardi. Some of us rushed to see it in a somewhat jet lagged state. We knew she was a great collector of crafts ( from our briefing notes!) and the only woman architect working in the  fifities and sixities. She was educated in Rome and edited Domus Magazine there until 1947 when she arrived in Brazil.
