Rafael Viñoly achieved fame as the architect of the stunning Tokyo International Forum (1989-1996). Viñoly founded his first office in Buenos Aires in 1969. 13 years later he emigrated to the United States. With offices in New York and Tokyo, Rafael Viñoly Architects is now one of the most successful architectural offices worldwide, with an impressive list of projects in the areas of architecture, urban planning and interior design, including significant buildings such as the Philadelphia Regional Performing Arts Center, Princeton University Stadium, and the New Bronx Supreme Criminal Court Complex. This book documents a large number of Viñoly's most significant buildings and projects. It also includes an essay by Joan Ockman, one of the best-known architecture theoreticians in the USA, and texts by Rafael Viñoly revealing the role the cultural exchange between S. America, Europe and the USA has played in his career.
The concept was based on a selection from Rafaello Vinolini's works, some of the most brutal, radical buildings all around the world. This brutalism is achieved through the limited use of colour in the book and the intersection of 2D and 3D spaces.
