Urban intervention and Miami icon 'The Living Room' by Robert Behar and Rosario Marquardt, 2001

Architonic talks to Miami-based artists Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt about the relation between art and architecture, and how public space has become more contested than ever.
Long before architects were commissioned to sign their names on skylines across the globe, artists were largely responsible for creating local icons. And few of those public artworks have achieved the notoriety of ‘The Living Room’. Created by Robert Behar and Rosario Marquardt, who work under the name R & R Studios, the 2001 installation arguably qualifies as the most widely recognised of their interventions in Miami, their adopted hometown since 1985.

'All Together Now', Denver, by Robert Behar and Rosario Marquardt, 2007

Since then, R & R Studios has continued exploring subjects that ‘The Living Room’ captured so well, such as the scale (and more generally, the attitude) of public monuments, urban life, and the perceived permanence of cities in works like ‘House of Cards’ for the Miami Art Museum and ‘All Together Now’ in downtown Denver. Here, Behar and Marquardt delve deeply into ‘The Living Room’ and discuss how recurring themes in its work reflect the state of American cities as well as the relationship between artistic and architectural practice.
