ICONIC+ART Cover by K. Shakman | July | 2012


Iconic Architecture and Design (Karen Shakman) has launched an alliance with Architectural Resources Team (Patrick C. Rehse) with the goal of pursuing projects in Brazil. We have established solid relationships with developers and architectural offices, primarily in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Curitiba, and will be participating in bidding processes and selections interviews.
Thanks to a program through the Chamber of Commerce in Phoenix this last year, Patrick has visited several architectural offices in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, when he was able to foresee the tremendous opportunity to joint venture with these local organizations and provide architectural services and consultancy. We are excited to be the liaison between both countries.
Brazil has been considered one of the “BRIC” countries along with Russia, India and China. These countries are deemed to be at a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. The big challenge for the government of Brazil will be to fill in the gap between “nouveau rich” status and the “old poor” infra-structure at all levels. Not an easy task since the World Cup is here (2014) and the Olympic Games are just around the corner (2016).
