Unbuilt | Macau, Brazil

CONCEPT | The concept for this house was to joint two architectonic techniques that are on the opposite sides of the spectrum: vernacular architecture and 3d printing. The goal was to achieve a seamless experience and design style that takes advantage of both the site’s local materials, and the innovative techniques of pre-built parts using cutting edge technology to create a shading device for the living room area.
