The practice’s work has been widely exhibited and published in Brazil and abroad.
BCMF Architects was established in 2001 by partners Bruno Campos, Marcelo Fontes and Silvio Todeschi. Among the main projects of the studio, the Deodoro Sports Complex, built for the Rio 2007 Pan American Games and ready to be used in the 2016 Olympics, has won the Golden Medal at the 1st IAKS LAC Award in 2010 and the “Special Prize” in the IOC/IAKS 2011 Award in Cologne, Germany. In 2008/2009 BCMF was commissioned by the Brazilian Organizing Committee (COB) to develop the majority of the concept studies for the winning Rio 2016 candidature. In 2010-2012 the studio was responsible for the renovation of the Mineirão Stadium, in Belo Horizonte (MG), becoming the first Brazilian architectural practice to participate in the three major mega sports events that have been promising to transform the country: Pan 2007, Rio 2016 and 2014 World Cup.
