THE DESIGNER

Paulo Mendes da Rocha

Architect, designerPaulo Mendes da Rocha is an international reference of the Brazilian architecture. Influenced at his beginning by his elders Oscar Niemeyer, Affonso Eduardo Reidy and the «brutalist» João Vilanova Artigas, he is part of those who knew, in their practice, to create an international style while keeping well anchored the Brazilian spirit. His work is assimilated to the «São Paulo’s brutalist architecture school», a movement of creators focused on forms, simple materials and on a certain ethic. A brutalism which refers to the rough concrete. He creates works at the same time sincere and daring, imaginative and unexpected and always leaves an important place to the social dimension in his art. The architect is a Man who carries a sincere interest in humankind, who has the role to create the most adequate and viable habitat possible. In that sense, Paulo Mendes da Rocha is a modernist; nothing distracts him from his vision for a better future. In 2006, Paulo Mendes da Rocha is awarded for his all carrier by the Pritzker Prize of Architecture.
