Marcio Kogan (born March 6, 1952, São Paulo Brazil) graduated from the School of Architecture and Urbanism at the University Presbyterian Mackenzie in 1976. He is the son of the engineer Aron Kogan, who became known in the 1950s and 1960s for the design and construction of large buildings in São Paulo, such as Edificio São Vito and Edificio Mirante do Vale. During the onset of his career, Marcio divided his time between cinema and architecture in partnership with Isay Weinfeld, his friend from university. In 1988, the duo produced a feature-film called “Fire and Passion”, and, between 1995 and 2004, they did 5 exhibitions together about architecture and humor. In 2001, Marcio Kogan's Office changed its name to Studio MK27 and since then has gained greater international projection. Currently, besides his working in Brazil, he is also working on projects in Peru, Uruguay, Chile, United States, Canada, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, India, Israel and Indonesia.
