I skal heller ikke snydes for at se lidt flere billeder fra den brasilianske stjernearktiekt Marcio Kogans lejlighed i Säo Paulo. Marcio Kogan grundlagde sit designstudio “StudioMK27” i begyndelsen af 1980’erne og har i dag 20 arkitekter ansat. Han er en af Brasiliens mest betydningsfulde nutidige arkitekter. At han er både musikalsk, kreativ og et stort legebarn er man ikke i tvivl om, når man har set hans hjem.
Marcio Kogans office has won numerous international awards such as: Wallpaper Design Awards, Record House, Interior Record, D&AD, LEAF Awards, Dedalo Minosse, Barbara Cappochin of the International Biennial of Padova, Spark Awards and World Architecture Festival. In 2011, Wallpaper and Época considered Marcio Kogan as one of the 100 most influential people and received the title of honorary member of the AIA, American Institute of Architects and in 2012 represented Brazil in the Venice Biennial of Architecture. In Brazil he has received 13 awards of the Instituto de Arquitetos do Brasil, IAB (Brazilian Institute of Architects). The projects of StudioMK27 are valued for their formal simplicity, always working with special attention to the details and finishings. Marcio Kogan and the architects of the team, are great admirers of the Brazilian modernist generation, and seek to fulfill the difficult task of giving continuity to this line of production.
