Terracotta in Tehran

If you want to see an innovative use of stack bonded brickwork used in an interesting and creative way, look no further than the Hitra Building in Tehran, designed by Hooba Design Studio. The bricks have been used as a second skin to shield the large expanse of glass from the sun. The radial corners and cantilevered floors make full use of the site and creates a facade that changes colour depending on the weather.
