BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Nov. 14, 2014) — The work of Cesar Pelli and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects is the subject of a retrospective exhibition on view now at the Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“Arquitecto Global” illustrates the breadth of the firm’s work through photographs, drawings, models and video.  Photographs of architects working in the design studio provide a window into the firm’s unique culture and design process.   

Beginning with Pelli’s early career with Saarinen and then with DMJM and Gruen Associates, the show includes seminal works such as San Bernadino City Hall and the Pacific Design Center. Pelli’s years at the Yale School of Architecture, where he was dean from 1977 to 1984, are also represented. The majority of the show focuses on Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, drawing projects from the firm’s 37-year history. More than 20 examples are featured, including the Petronas Towers, One Canada Square, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, and Torre Iberdrola. The exhibition also highlights the firm’s work in Argentina, including Torre Banco Macro, Maral Explanada and Torre YPF.

Cesar Pelli attended the opening reception and a ceremony where he was recognized by the Minister of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires as a Prominent Cultural Figure.

The exhibition is on view at the Centro Cultural Recoleta through February 2015.
