Casa Atlantica is a luxury high-rise condo development that, incredibly enough, is the first project being carried out by the famous Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid in the continent of South America. This luxury high-rise will be located on the Copacabana beach in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

This particular luxury high-rise's design stands out for its unique spiny facade. The structure is going to hit a height somewhere near 40 meters and will take up a total land area in the region of 5,500 square meters. The luxury high-rise will include amenities including large balconies with gorgeous views of the sea.

Ultimately, the Casa Atlantica building marks the invasion of Zaha Hadid Architects into South America, and this high-rise stands to add new character to the famous Copacabana beach.
