César Pelli

CÉSAR PELLI



César Pelli (born October 12, 1926) is an Argentine American architect known for designing some of the world's tallest buildings and other major urban landmarks. In 1991, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) listed Pelli among the ten most influential living American architects. His many awards include the 1995 AIA Gold Medal which recognizes a body of work of lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture. Perhaps his most famous work are the Petronas Twin Towers, which were for a time the world's tallest buildings. He also designed the World Financial Center complex in downtown Manhattan. After studying architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, Pelli completed his studies at the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He started his career in the New Haven offices of architect Eero Saarinen. He emigrated to the United States in 1952 and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1964. He married Diana Balmori, a landscape and urban designer. They have two children: Denis, a neurobiologist and Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University and Rafael Pelli, also well-known architect. Pelli served as dean of the School of Architecture at Yale University from 1977 to 1984. His firm employs about 100 architects, designers, and support staff in New Haven, Connecticut.

Santiago de Chile: Costanera Center






The Costanera Center Tower is one the pieces of a bigger complex who also has a huge mall of almost 10 floors and three other corporate towers. This skyscraper is one of the most relevant examples of the international modern architecture in Latin America. When it was finally finished, it quickly became an icon for Santiago de Chile thanks to its height, which makes it an easy target throughout the city and indirectly acts as geographical point. The mall itself also became one new meeting point for the people pf the city, along with the waves of tourists (mostly from Argentina) who go there and buy technological and clothing products. Lastly, the “Sky Costanera” Observation Deck on the last floors, where you can feel the wind, the sound of dozens and dozens of people, and the gorgeous views of the city.

Petronas Tower 3

Completed in 2011, this tower looks identical with the Petronas Twin Towers because of the similar type of facade.

UniCredit Tower
Milan, Italy
231 m

The UniCredit tower may be seen as the icon of the new Milan. The master plan is part of a developing area in Milan. The three buildings are designed around a new circle plaza in honor of the Italian traditional piazzas (plaza). The spire is a tribute to the spires of the old Cathedral. The lights of the spire change the colours, depending to special events or holidays (red during Christmas, green/white/red to celebrate Italy, and so on...)

I beg to differ.. His magnum opus has got to be the Twin Towers. It is one of the most recognizable buildings in the world.
