marcosandmarjan is an experimental practice founded by Marjan Colletti and Marcos Cruz in 2000. Their investigations focus on the applicability of new design techniques and innovative construction technologies on architecture, and the development of new typological, topological, morphological, ecological, as well as ‘corpological’ conditions in complex building projects. They have done this though a variety of competition and exhibition projects, built and un-built commissions and a series of small-scale installations. New digital modeling and manufacturing technologies, including 2D and 3D processes, have been of particular relevance.

Built projects include two pavilions and the general layout for the 75th Lisbon Book Fair in Portugal in 2005 and the widely exhibited Nurbster series. More recently they also developed a housing project in Lisbon, a large entertainment complex in Beijing, and several competitions for the Middle East. With ‘Interfaces / Intrafaces’ their work was presented for the first time as a monograph within the scope of the iCP Consequence Book Series on Fresh Architecture from SpringerWienNewYork.
