Studio MK27 located in the chaotic city of São Paulo was founded in the late 70’s by architect Marcio Kogan 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.
He leads a team of architects who, for the most part, have been working with him for over a decade.
Since 2001, when he started a co-creation and cooperative work system at the office, studio mk27 has won more than 250 national and international awards, such as: IAB (Institute of Brazilian Architects), São Paulo Architectural Biennial, WAF, Architectural Review, Dedado Minosse, Record House, Leaf, D&AD, Spark, Barbara Cappochin, Iconic, AZ, Buenos Aires Ibero-americana Architectural Biennial and Wallpaper Design Award. The Studio team has lectured at the Royal Academy of Arts, AIA, Société Française des Architectes, Clubovka, FAU-USP, Mackenzie, FAAP, Politecnico di Milano, Mantova, Verona, Valencia, South Florida, Rice, The University of Texas and Cornell universities among others. In 2012 studio mk27 represented Brazil at the Venice Biennale, which meant some extra kilos for the group of 10 architects who went for a gondola ride.
