architect

Rafael Viñoly forty-five years of architectural practice in the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East have been consistently driven by the belief that the essential responsibility of the architect is to elevate the public realm.

As in his much-publicized proposal for the World Trade Center site, his focus has often been on maximizing the opportunity for civic investment generated by every project.He personally leads the design of every project in order to ensure these aspirations are achieved. Viñoly’s work is marked by a sustained structural originality that transcends the fashions of architectural movements.

At home with both large and small- scale projects, his recent work ranges from university buildings such as the University
of Chicago Graduate School of Business to leading-edge biomedical research facilities such as the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Farm Campus in Virginia, to large mixed-use developments such as the Battersea Power Station redevelopment in London, and to civic and cultural facilities such as the LEED-Platinum David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, and the Curve theater in Leicester, UK.

Founded in New York in 1983, Rafael Viñoly Architects now has offices in London, Abu Dhabi and San Francisco. Internationally known for architectural projects around the globe, the firm has designed a number of landmark cultural and civic complexes as well as centers for health care and research, mixed-use developments and master plans. Over the past quarter century, the practice has continually demonstrated its ability to reinvent institutional typologies and integrate the public realm into civic buildings.
