The Estúdio MRGB is an architecture and urbanism office founded in 2004 in Brasília, to design great architecture for people. The Estudio unites the experiences of architects, engineers, and professionals of many different areas that collaborate with our production. The fact that we think of well being of people, as a principle, brings us the duty of taking further the architecture practice with quality, purpose, coherence, and ethic. The Estudio’s visual identity, characterized by the letters MRGB, have a narrow connection with Brasília. The initials symbolizes four scales that configure the architecture and urbanism of the city – Monumental, Residencial, Gathering, and Bucolic. The admiration, respect, and recognition for the contribution that the architect Lúcio Costa gave, not only in the construction of the new Republican capital city but above all, to the consolidation of our practice in Brazil, guides our work as architects and urbanists.Read More: Estudio MRGB | Brasilia | Brazil | Brazillian Architecture
