Casa Redux: A Love Story

Casa Redux: A Love Story

One of the 100 architects and offices taking part in the "Time Space Existence" exhibition, running parallel to the Venice Biennale, Studio MK27's Marcio Kogan has contributed to the exhibition with five videos that, often comedically and/or dramatically, portray the daily lives of the residents of his works.

Produced by Pedro Kok and Gabriel Kogan, the above video, titled That was not my dream, shows Casa Redux, a house located in Itatiba, Brazil.

The narrator tells the story of the house and how his ex-wife fell in love with its sober, cool and modern lines (as she simultaneously fell out of love with him). As the video lovingly captures each detail and material of the home, the narrator, critical of the house and of modern architecture in general, asks: "Who would want that kind of house - cold, dull, lifeless?" 

Answer? Us. If you agree, make sure to check out more of Studio MK27's fantastic homes here.
