The 360º Building AKA the ‘Jenga building’ by Isay Weinfeld

In its most basic form it is simply 62 "houses with yards", stacked on top of one another exactly like the blocks of a Jenga game. 

Wanting to avoid the seemingly inevitable problem of reduced outside space in traditional apartment block buildings, Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, created the 360º Building which offers yards rather than balconies.

The result is a stunning tower block high on the hills of Alto de Lapa which looks like it may fall over at any time.
