by Marcio Kogan
An architect with his roots in film, Marcio Kogan has made a name for himself as a Brazilian designer with a modern aesthetic. In 2011, his body of work was honored by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and he was given an honorary membership in the organization. His designs play with the simplicity of form, the correlation of volume and the relationship between internal and external spaces. This is evident in his product design as well as his architecture. His design of the Super Bowl is an example of simplicity and a play on materials, with Brazilian rubber paired with copper. Kogan’s architectural work includes the B&B House in Sao Paulo and the Redux House in Bragança Paulista, Brazil.
