As Brazilians continue to watch in disbelief the aftermath of the April and May storms in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil welcomed the visit of Chinese architect and landscape designer Kongjian Yu, creator of the sponge city concept, which leverages nature itself to better withstand the increasing occurrence of storms.

"I hope Brazil can be a reference for how we should build the world," says the professor from Peking University, who came to the country at the invitation of the National Bank for Economic and Social Development (BNDES).
