Architecture: Brazilian Leaf House

The Brazilian Leaf House designed by Mareines + Patalano.  This is one of the most amazing roofs I've ever seen. 

With verandas and open spaces in between rooms and no corridors, the tropical beach house is an ideal place for social gatherings and parties. The open layout also takes advantage of trade winds that blow in from the sea, providing natural ventilation and passive cooling. (via inhabitat)
