Architects, not Architecture | VWT Brazil Edition with Marcio Kogan and Cristiane Muniz

by Robbie

After an amazing response to the first Virtual World Tour, during the peak of the pandemic in late 2020 early 2021, we decided to continue our global digital approach to connect the architectural community on a personal level. From October 13th until December 8th, 2021 we will be hosting five events for the first half of our new Virtual World Tour. This year we will visit Hong Kong, Brazil, Japan, The United States, Turkey and Canada, where we have invited two architects respectively to tell us about their biographies, anecdotes and events that have shaped their architectural positions and personalities.

Our highlight event will be the Japan Edition where we will have Pritzker-Prize laureate and world-renowned architect Toyo Ito as our speaker!

/// Program and Registration

The guests are invited to present their stories for 20 minutes followed by a 10 minute conversation with founder and host of Architects, not Architecture, Fermín Tribaldos. A roundtable discussion with both speakers and the host, as well as questions from the audience will close the event. All talks are accessible free of cost with a live-stream link provided to your e-

She coordinated from 2014 to 2019 the post-graduation course “Architecture, Education and Society ” at the same school, where she has also been a professor of Design since 2004.

Marcio Kogan is the founding architect and professor of all the team at Studio MK27. The practice, located in the chaotic city of São Paulo, was founded in the late 70’s and today is comprised of 30 architects and various collaborators worldwide. The architects of the team, great admirers of the Brazilian modernism generation, seek to fulfill the task of rethinking and giving continuity to this iconic architectural movement. The projects of Studio MK27 place value on formal simplicity and are elaborated  with extreme care and attention to details and finishings. 
Kogan is an honorary member of the AIA (American Institute of Architecture), Professor at Escola da Cidade in São Paulo and Politecnico di Milano, considered by Época magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential persons in Brazil, is part of “Wallpaper’s 150 Famous for 15 Years”, and came in 39th in Dezeen’s Hot List 2017.
