Argentine firm Estudio Arzubialde and Chilean architect Verónica Arcos led a Material Experimentation Workshop in Rosario, Argentina, during which six different groups of students designed and built projects using a variety of brick laying techniques. 

Each project used different brick patterns based on simple rules, resulting in a structure with a certain degree of geometric complexity.

Zaha Hadid Architects has released more information on their first Brazilian project - a luxury residential building known as Casa Atlântica. Planned for a site on Rio de Janeiro's Avenida Atlântica at Copacabana Beach, the 11-story building features a spine-like facade with expansive balconies and a roof top pool. 

"The natural forms of Rio’s morros and beaches generate an elastic, malleable quality within the city’s urban fabric, while the dynamism of Copacabana - with its energy and rhythm - is one of the city’s most important public spaces," says ZHA.

"Casa Atlântica’s design continues the liberating composition and spatial flow inherent within Brazil’s rich Modernist tradition, engaging with the unique tempo and vitality of Copacabana’s urban beach culture, as well as the fluidity of its renowned Burle Marx promenade."
