Arquitectura - Siglo XXI. Biblioteca A-72 VIÑOLY RAF
The definitive monograph highlighting the global works of the visionary hailed by The New York Times' Herbert Muschamp as "the most elegant architect now practicing in the United States". 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 his native continent, his first major projects in New York—the John Jay College of Criminal Justice—and in Tokyo—the International Forum—established Viñoly as an international 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 centers, 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.
