Office Kovacs is led by Andrew Kovacs, who teaches in the UCLA Architecture and Urban Design Department and is the creator and curator of Archive of Affinities blog, an outlet for his fascination for finding and sharing architecture’s unturned stones, or “B-sides,” which he shares on social media. “Instagram has allowed for a more rapid and open exchange of ideas, sensibilities, and tastes,” he says, adding that social platforms broaden the reach of architecture. In 2015, Kovacs created Bust of Medusa, a model constructed with found objects that speculates on the possibility of collective, densely populated human habitation. He collaborates with L.A.-based architectural designer Erin Wright, who joined Office Kovacs over two years ago.
