Milton Braga studied architecture at the Faculdade de Arquitetura e Ubanismo da Universidade de Sao Paulo (FAUUSP), Brazil, receiving three degrees, the preliminary degree in 1986, his Masters in 1999 and a PhD in 2006. He has been teaching at the FAUUSP since 2001, with previous academic positions at the Universidade Sao Judas Tadeu and Universidade Braz Cubas, both in Sao Paulo, and the University of Florida, USA.
Milton is a founding partner of MMBB Arquitetos. Since its inception in 1991, MMBB has grown in notoriety, earning well-deserved recognition through numerous awards and exhibitions like the First Prize in the Private Competition promoted by the State Government of São Paulo for the new Lodging, Classes and Rehearsal Complex for the International Festival of Campos do Jordao, 2009, and the Best Entry Award for the Watery Voids proposal in the 3rd International Architecture Biennale of Rotterdam, 2007. MMBB is also recognized for their on-going collaboration with Pritzker Laureate Paulo Mendes da Rocha. Yet their efforts are not overshadowed by this relationship. Instead, they fold the influences that Mendes da Rocha provides with their own design aspirations to arrive at an architecture entirely their own – one steeped in the canons of modernism while boldly questioning the possibilities that lay unexplored.
