Rafael Viñoly Architects
By Rafael Viñoly and Philip Jodidio
Publication Date: May 2011
The definitive monograph highlighting the global works of this leading contemporary architect.
For nearly half a century Rafael Viñoly has been driven by the belief that the responsibility of architecture is to elevate the public realm. While his early work in Argentina transformed the landscape of the country, his first major international projects - the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York and the International Forum in Tokyo - established Viñoly as a global presence in architecture, whose buildings sustain a structural originality that transcends passing fads. This monograph features a chronological sampling of Viñoly’s best work in the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The large and small-scale projects encompass courthouses, private residences, athletic facilities, performing arts centres, museums and educational buildings. Illustrated with photographs, plans and drawings, and accented by Viñoly’s personal reflection on his career, this volume brings together the achievements of one of today’s most internationally acclaimed architects.
Rafael Viñoly was born in Uruguay and by the age of twenty was founding partner of Estudio de Arquitectura, which would become one of the largest design studios in Latin America. In 1983 he founded Rafael Viñoly Architects PC, a New York based firm that now has offices in London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Abu Dhabi. Philip Jodidio has published numerous books on contemporary architecture, including Architecture: Art and Architecture: Nature (both by Prestel). He lives in Grimentz, Switzerland.
