Ruy Ohtake in São Paulo

July 31, 2007 | By More

São Paulo is host to some excellent examples of the work of Japanese-Brazilian architect Ruy Ohtake. One of those examples is the Hotel Unique, winner of uncountable architecture prizes for its futuristic design. Fans of the game show Amazing Race (ninth season) will remember that the contestants had to climb to the top terrace of the hotel.
