Meet Andrew Kovacs of Office Kovacs in Downtown, Chinatown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Kovacs.

Andrew, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I studied architecture, worked for a number of architects and then I started teaching architecture along with further developing my own design studio.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It is never a smooth road! Sometimes there is no road. I am interested in developing an architectural project that has a broad appeal. An architectural project that can not only engage fundamental issues of the discipline of architecture but also reach a wider audience and interest.

Please tell us about Office Kovacs.
Office Kovacs is a design studio based in Los Angeles, California. O.K. works on projects at all scales from books, exhibitions, temporary installations, interiors, homes, renovations, speculative architectural proposals and public architecture competitions. The recent design work of Office Kovacs includes a large scale art installation entitled Colossal Cacti at the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival and an experimental camping pavilion in the Morongo Valley Desert.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Looking and visiting buildings with my family.
