For photographer Reinaldo Cóser and his family of four, the best way to deal with the sometimes-draining throb of massive São Paulo was to simply rise above. By keeping the front and back gardens at the same elevation as the living area, architect Marcio Kogan created one giant living space. A large overhang means that even on a rainy day, the Cósers can live practically without walls. Photo by Cristóbal Palma.  Latin America's Best Modern Homes by Kelsey Keith
