Carlos Ott

Carlos Ott







Carlos Ott (born October 16, 1946, in Montevideo) is a Uruguayan architect who resides in Canada and many other countries. He became famous when he won his first prize in 1983 (among 744 architects from all over the world) for the construction of the Opéra de la Bastille in Paris, which was inaugurated on July 14, 1989 (bicentennial of the French Revolution). He has offices in Toronto, Quebec, Shanghai, Dubai and Montevideo. Ott graduated from the School of Architecture at the University of the Republic, Uruguay at the age of 23. In 1971, he received the Fulbright Scholarship and went to study at the University of Hawaii and graduated with a Masters in Architecture and Urban Design from Washington University's School of Architecture in 1972. From 1972 to 1974, he worked as an architect for Baldwin & Cheshire Architects in Brunswick, Georgia, and for ARQUECO in San Jose, Costa Rica. In 1975 he moved to Canada where he was associate architect until 1979 at Moffat, Moffat Kinoshita & Associates Architects in Toronto. From 1979 to 1983 he joined Cadillac Fairview Corporation as architect responsible for commercial and multi-purpose projects in Canada. From 1983 to 1993 he joined NORR Partnership Ltd, the largest Canadian firm, located in Toronto as partner heading the Design and Architecture Division. Under his direction important projects in Canada and the United Arab Emirates were designed and built, such as: the Federal Court Building (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada), Simcoe Place (Toronto), Mixed Use Complex and Residential/Commercial Development for HE Sheik Tahnoon in Dubai, Union National Bank (Dubai), National Bank of Dubai (Dubai) and Union National Bank (Abu Dhabi). In 1983, Ott won the international design competition for the Opera de la Bastille in Paris, France, to commemorate the 200 year anniversary of the French Revolution on July 14, 1989. Ott was selected from 744 participants as one of the three finalists and then hand-picked by French President François Mitterrand as the winner of this prestigious project. In order to carry out the supervision of this project, he moved to Paris and formed a team, which in turn gave him international recognition and opened doors to many countries. His next accomplishments followed by winning the competition for an extremely advanced hospital in Weimar, Germany and several competitions in the United Arab Emirates such as: the Sheikh Zayed Road Development Project (Abu Dhabi), the National Bank of Abu Dhabi Headquarters (Abu Dhabi), Etisalat Telecom & Administration Building (Abu Dhabi), Majid Al Futtaim Project (Dubai), Baniyas Road Development (Dubai), Offices for the Al-Futtaim Group (Dubai), the New Dubai Creek Hilton Hotel (Dubai).

Montevideo: Antel Tower







The city of Montevideo has what it probably is the most beatiful tower of Latin America: the Antel Tower (or “Torre de Telecomunicaciones”), designed by the famous architect Carlos Ott. It’s part of a masterplan that was never finished. Still, the complex has the main tower of 35 floors (more than 150 meters-high), a park and 3 lowrises who have the same futurist style (often used on the other work of Carlos Ott) of the main tower.
