Welcome to Brazil, where architectural modernism had its own distinctive development. We are proud to host two extraordinary architects who will speak at the second session, of our second Virtual World Tour on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 live at 15:00 BRT (Sao Paulo time) / 20:00 CET (Berlin time)!

With Marcio Kogan, founder of Studio MK27, and Cristiane Muniz, co-founder of UNA MUNIZVEIGAS, we are able to present to you two amazing personalities who have a unique take on Brazilian modernism in practice and academia. However, as always with Architects, not Architecture we will not be talking about their architectural works.

What we will hear about instead, are the biographies, the events and the anecdotes that shaped the speakers and inspired them to form their architectural value systems.

Don’t hesitate and join us, when we get to know our two speakers:

Marcio Kogan, Studio MK27, www.studiomk27.com.br
