Rafael Viñoly, FAIA, JIA, SCA, Int FRIBA


Principal / Lead Designer of Rafael Viñoly Architects PC


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.

Rafael Viñoly Architects have just announced the completion of The Translational Research Center at Penn.  This first expansion phase in an overall master plan for Penn Medicine that includes both the University of Pennsylvania Health System and the University’s School of Medicine, the Translational Research Center builds on the original Perelman Center while simultaneously preserving its urban character and laying the groundwork for future development. As a translational facility, the new building unites research and clinical functions under one roof to allow the practices of scientific investigation and patient care to inform one another through close proximity.

Rafael Viñoly Architects’ design of the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Regeneration Medicine Building at the University of California, San Francisco has been completed.

The project is targeting LEED Gold certification. DPR Construction served as the design-build contractor and the Smith Group served as executive architect.


Located on a steeply sloping urban hillside, the Dolby regeneration medicine building presented the design team a unique challenge: executing a horizontal structure on an uneven site. RVA responded by creating a beautifully sinuous, serpentine building that makes use of every foot of available space.

Viñoly’s design for the new East Wing forms part of an impressive seven year expansion and renovation project. The 139,200 square foot East Wing connects CMA’s original 1916 Beaux-Arts building and the 1971 addition by Marcel Breuer, creating spectacular new spaces for the presentation and conservation of one of the leading encyclopaedic art collections in the United States.

Rafael Viñoly Architects' expansion of the Brooklyn Children's Museum, located at the intersection of Brooklyn Avenue and St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights, has reached substantial completion. It is slated to be New York City's first LEED Silver museum.



The museum was founded in 1899 and expanded on its current site in 1977. In 1999, it began to seek ways to increase capacity and to  create a new public presence for the twenty-first century. Rafael Viñoly Architects has achieved this by creating a distinctive L-shaped, two-story structure that differs from its context in color as well as physical form, yet remains welcoming and deferential to the  museum's existing built fabric. The plan doubles the museum's space to 102,000 square feet and is expected to expand its annual visitor capacity from 250,000 to 400,000.

The new terminal at Carrasco International Airport, which serves Uruguay’s capital city of Montevideo, was created to expand capacity and spur commercial growth and tourism in the surrounding region. The design of the building emphasizes its public zones and amenities, providing these areas with an abundance of open space and natural light. Arriving travelers, for example, pass through a fully glazed mezzanine level that helps orient them to the terminal space before they descend to immigration, the baggage claim, and customs. A public, landscaped terrace and a restaurant occupy the second floor, providing sweeping views of the runway and the main concourse.
