State of Art Academy MasterClass #14 just finished and here I feature the great work of the students. This time the main theme was a very interesting and complex architecture drawn by the Studio MAPA + Studio Paralelo and called CASA EM XANGRILÁ.

This would be the first time Google attempts to build their HQ from scratch, and an amazing achievement for Ingels and Heatherwick being singled out as best in class by Google for this project. Both in their 40’s. Google released 10 images (aerial by DBOX for sure. some of the others too but not sure which yet) as well as a video you should see to fully understand the concept, being presented by the designers themselves.
