Special Thanks to:

A group of engineers - Portuguese Amadeu Oliveira Coimbra, German Ernesto August Boeckmann and Brazilian Antônio de Góis - were the creators of the "cobogó", an element that allows the entrance of sunlight and natural ventilation used in construction openings.

The cobogó appeared in the 1920s, in Recife, and its name come from the combination of the first syllable of the last names of their creators. They are an inheritance of Arab culture, based on muxarabis - built in wood, were used to partially close the internal environments. reference : @archdaily
