A Casa, Museu do Objeto Brasileiro – or The Home, Museum of the Brazilian Object – is a project designed to serve as the home for this non profit organization in São Paulo, Brazil. The structure was designed by Perkins+Will, an American architectural firm located in Chicago, Illinois in 2014.
The new building houses an exhibition sector for artisanal, semi-artisanal, or industrial objects as an expression of culture, with a clear and strong focus on objects from Brazil. There are even plans for the organization to expand and found centers in other countries, thus expanding the scope of dissemination of information about Brazil and its situation.

The building has an interesting location, as it is on Avenida Pedroso de Moraes, near the Tomie Ohtake Institute, and sits on a corner that connects the residential area of the Pinheiros neighborhood with an established commercial zone.
The structure is modern and stylish, surrounded by a landscaping program that makes it look friendly and inviting. The interior is done with a minimalist style in mind, with stark white walls and rich wooden floors, creating a blank canvas against which to display objects from Brazilian culture and tell the story that the non profit seeks out to tell.
