Brazilian practice Königsberger Vannucchi Architects has created the world's biggest augmented virtual skyscraper in Espírito Santo, Brazil.

The Fibrasa Connection project augmented reality marker allows potential buyers to see the building before construction work has even begun.

There is also a larger screen present in the development's sales room.

The project also received entry into the Guinness World Records book last month, according to bdonline.co.uk.
