So we asked architects to weigh in on the work of some of our most-appreciated architecture photographers. Here, Fernando Forte of FGMF writes on behalf of Fran Parente

Edifício Corujas Proposal / FGMF Arquitetos

Designed by FGMF Arquitetos, the proposal for the Edifício Corujas, aims to create a more humane space to work, going against the traditional mirrored glass cubes located in regions of São Paulo, such as Avenida Faria Lima or Avenida Berrini. Designed using several sizes and formats, they create a horizontal solution. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Edifício Itaim Proposal / FGMF Arquitetos

Courtesy of

The proposal by FGMF Arquitetos for the Edifício Itaim consists of duplex and triplex apartments, between 882 and 1066 m2 in size. The plans act as a huge brise-soleil, shading the north façade and minimizing the impact of the west, where one has the best view. So, living rooms are fluid spaces open to landscape. Located in one of the most valued places in the city, the building also has a permanent view to the park in front and Morumbi. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Multipurpose Complex Proposal / FGMF Arquitetos

Courtesy of

Intending to create a new architectural reference for the region of Brasilia, the Multipurpose Complex becomes a new destination in the city. Designed by FGMF Arquitetos, the building creates a landmark in the landscape through the uses of retail, office buildings, and modular offices. More images and architects’ description after the break.
