Arquitectura Viva – 360˚ Building, São Paulo, by Isay Weinfeld

Madrid-based architecture magazine Arquitectura Viva featured an article on Isay Weinfeld‘s 360˚ building in São Paulo.  The 360˚ Building stands out from other São Paulo residential buildings as it avoids the traditional stacked apartments, offering a looser layout that allows for each unit to have an outside area more like a courtyard than the usual terraces – a ‘Babylon of courtyards’ – ” …in this building sixty-two dwellings are arranged around real courtyards, conceived as bona fide domestic spaces,  spacious and open to light and air….  Distributed in the tower’s twenty floors, the courtyards form aesthetic voids between the living units.”
