PROFILE

Kovacs was born in Chicago, Illinois. In 2012-2013 Kovacs was the inaugural UCLA Teaching Fellow for which he produced GOODS USED: AN ARCHITECTURAL YARD SALE at Jai and Jai Gallery in Los Angeles. In collaboration with Laurel Broughton in 2014, the pair produced Gallery Attachment/As Builts sponsored by the LA Forum’s John Chase Memorial fund and Storefront for Art and Architecture’s World Wide Storefront program. Gallery Attachment/As Builts was a two part show: an architectural intervention in a residual space in Los Angeles’ Chinatown composed of the debris of modern civilization. Kovacs, is the creator and curator of Archive of Affinities, a website devoted to the collection and display of architectural b-sides. Kovacs’ work on architecture and urbanism has been published widely including Pidgin, Project, Perspecta, Manifest, Metropolis, Clog, Domus, and Fulcrum. His recent design work includes a proposal for a haute dog park in downtown Los Angeles and the renovation of an airstream trailer into a mobile retail store that travels the Pacific Coast Highway.
