Here's a little information from Kok:

The Ibirapuera Park Marquise in São Paulo, Brazil is a covered pathway that links various buildings and houses the MAM Museum, restaurants and utilities. Every day, skateboarders, cyclists, athletes, families and lonesomes gather under it. Designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer in 1954.

This video is part of the exhibition Arquitetura Brasileira – Viver na Floresta (Brazilian Architecture – Living in the Forest), at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paulo, Brazil until August 1st 2010. More details (in portuguese only).

    love how the walkway acts as both the journey and the destination.

    I always forget about the incredible vegitation of Brasil. This is what modernism is made for.

  • how would one achieve those beautiful ‘ghostly’ figures?
    Shot twice i presume, with and without people?

  • angry catalan

    Ha, translucent people! Looks like Pedro Kok has a good sense of humour. I liked the video, although on the night shots the space looks a bit underdesigned: big ceiling, some pillars. But it looks like (translucent) people enjoy being there a lot. Good one.

    Sean, yes – layers and opacity

  • san

    interesting question as lighting/position and strength of shadows would not be the same if shot twice…maybe a lot of work in after effects?

  • Hi Sean,

    I need just one frame without people. Either I wait for this to occur, or I later remove them in post-processing.

    Kind regards,


  • this place is incredible, the essence of architecture, the union with nature,

  • 22lab
