Like one big game of Jenga, the Benguela 88 building reaches up to the skies in a blockish, teetering way. Asymmetrical the whole way up, the structure is visually stunning, as though it were more of a work of art than an example of architecture. Nevertheless, the Benguela 88 building is purported to hold different types of housing units in the heart of Benguela, the second large metropolis of Angola. It will incorporate lush outdoor gardens as well.

Designed by OODA, an architectural firm based in Portugal, the Benguela 88 building is a 26 story high structure. Working on the team developing the schematics is Diogo Brito, Rodrigo Vilas-Boas, Francisco Lencastre, Duarte Fontes and Francisca Santos.
