Alberto Rubens Botti e Marc Boris Rubin (1931-2023)
Botti Rubin Arquitetos Associados is managed by architects Alberto Botti and Marc Rubin, two former Mackenzie students who graduated at the beginning of the 1950s. Founded in the late fifties, it is the oldest active Brazilian architectural firm run by the same founding partners, so the firm represents one of the longest-standing architectural partnerships, even on an international level.
Headquartered in SÃ£o Paulo, Botti Rubinï¿½??s staff includes approximately 30 architects (some with over 35 years of experience working at the company and who today are firm partners) and has been responsible for around 1,000 buildings throughout its history. The firm has designed a range of projects comprising residential buildings (including several jewels admired by the local architectural community, such as the SÃ£o FÃ©lix building) high rise office buildings, hospitals, large shopping malls (such as Shopping HigienÃ³polis, in SÃ£o Paulo), multi-use buildings, like the 280-thousand square meter Centro Empresarial NaÃ§Ãµes Unidas, also in SÃ£o Paulo.
