Design Detail – A Wall Of Concrete Blocks With Geometric Shapes
According to the architects, the wall is a reference to modernism in Brazil from the 1930’s, when the blocks were used in construction as they were easily reproduced on a large scale.
The blocks act as a screen, creating shade without the need to build a solid wall, as well as allowing the breeze to pass through them.
