BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
 
 
Rafael Viñoly’s forty-five years of architectural practice in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia have been consistently driven by the belief that the essential responsibility of architecture is to elevate the public realm. As in his much-publicized proposal for the World Trade Center site, his deepest focus has been on maximizing the opportunity for civic investment generated by every construction project.
Viñoly was born in Uruguay in 1944, and, by the age of twenty, he was a founding partner of Estudio de Arquitectura, which would become one of the largest design studios in Latin America. His celebrated early work transformed the landscape of Argentina, where this practice was based. In 1978, Viñoly moved to the United States. After briefly serving as a guest lecturer at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, he settled in New York in 1979.
In 1983, Viñoly founded Rafael Viñoly Architects PC, a New York-based firm with affiliate offices in London and Los Angeles. Through this highly developed entity, Viñoly has completed many critically acclaimed civic projects as well as private and institutional commissions. His first major New York project was the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, completed in 1988. In 1989, he won an open international competition to design the Tokyo International Forum, the largest and most important cultural complex in Japan. Completed in 1996, this design secured Viñoly’s reputation as an architect of great imagination and immense professional rigor with a proven capacity to create beloved civic and cultural spaces. The 2001 opening of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia marked a similar success in the United States. The building prompted other seminal commissions including Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, and the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, iconic civic gathering spaces in their respective cities.
