Argentine architects Rosario Marquardt and Roberto Behar share their passion for creating emotional monuments. Their billboard-size greetings of Peace and Love and Besame Mucho at the Miami International Airport, Supernova at the 2018 Coachella Music Festival, and WOW, a new skate-able sculpture for the Lauridsen Skatepark in DesMoines, Iowa, are just a few of the iconic landmarks they've produced.
