PROFILE

ROBERTO BEHAR
&
ROSARIO MARQUARDT

R&R STUDIOS creates architecture and artworks that perform as social sculptures and tools for the pursuit of happiness.

We weave together visual arts, architecture, design, landscape and the city. The ambition of our practice is to reclaim, enhance and develop the public dimension of the city. We seek to produce a public architecture that highlights the communal and civic dimension of life and erases boundaries between art and everyday life. We understand our work as experiments in public space, models of possibilities that might imbue the construction of the city with new meaning and emotion.

Our social sculptures, squares, parks, buildings, books, paintings, drawings, photographs, models, installations, objects, furniture and texts are all part of a web of interconnected ideas that feed off and into each other. They propose encounters of stories and spaces, which alternate between the poetical and the political, the quotidian and the fantastic, the real and the utopian, the North and the South. Our aim is to build dreams and thoughts for a better world.

We have known each other since childhood and summers at the beach, we study architecture together and received Diplomas in Architecture and Urbanism from the Universidad Nacional de Rosario in Argentina and later attended the legendary Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York City. We have taught, lectured and served as visiting critics at major universities including Harvard GSD, Yale University, Cornell University, Universita IUAV di Venezia, and the Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne; and have been visiting artists and fellows at the Getty Research Center in Los Angeles and the American Academy in Rome. Roberto is currently Professor in Practice at the University of Miami

The work of R&R STUDIOS has been exhibited internationally in solo and group museums shows, and is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in Buenos Aires, the Archives d’Architecture Moderne, in Brussels, the Perez Art Museum Miami, and Madison MOCA among others. Several books and over 350 publications worldwide present the production of R&R STUDIOS.

Most recently, we have completed public spaces that double as instant landmarks in Seattle, WA and San Juan, PR for the Sound Transit Art Program and the GSA.  In 2016 and 2018 we realized  Besame Mucho and Supernova, two unforgettable projects for Coachella Music and Art Festival. We are currently working on THE HOME WE SHARE: a suite of three permanent large scale public art projects for Princeton University and the Mitrani Art Center, a facility dedicated to contemporary video and photography in Miami.  I LOVE YOU, A Traveling Square is now open for all at Waterfront Park in Alexandria, VA.

Peace & Love
