Established in 2001, BCMF Arquitetos (partners Bruno Campos, Marcelo Fontes e Silvio Todeschi) has been involved in a broad range of projects marked by exceptional quality. From concept design through construction documents we strive to maintain rigorous control of the design process trough comprehensive detailing, complete integration with engineering work, and coordination of all disciplines to minimize conflicts. In our practice we seek to be highly diversified in terms of scale and typology, ranging from interior design (retail spaces and furniture), residential and commercial buildings (including single-‐family houses) to large-‐scale projects (arenas, sports facilities, convention center, shopping centers, hospitals, industries, parks, and urban schemes). Among the main projects of the practice, the Deodoro Sports Complex (National Shooting Center, Equestrian Center, Field Hockey and Modern Pentathlon)_ designed for the Rio 2007 Pan American Games _ was nominated for “Best work of young author” at the VI Ibero American Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism (Lisbon), has won the Golden Medal at the 1st IAKS LAC Award (International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities / Section Latin America and Caribbean) in 2010 and the "Special Prize" in the IOC / IAKS 2011 Award in Cologne, Germany. In 2008/2009 BCMF Arquitetos was commissioned by the Brazilian Organizing Committee (COB) to develop the architecture and landscape concept studies of most of the venues and facilities for the Rio 2016 Candidature , mainly in the clusters of Barra da Tijuca and Deodoro. In 2010 BCMF was commissioned by the “Minas Arena” Consortium to be responsible for the renovation of the Mineirão Stadium, in Belo Horizonte (MG), one of the selected venues for the 2014 FIFA World CUP, becoming the first brazillian architectural practice to participate in the three major mega-‐events that promisse to transform the country: Pan 2007, 2014 World Cup and Rio 2016.
