César Pelli Dies

The designer of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur has passed away.

The Argentinian-American architect died aged 92.

He believed it is a mistake to have a style, because these days architects work in so many different places around the world that they need to be more responsive location.

César Pelli was born in San Miguel de Tucumán, north-west Argentina.

He studied architecture at the National University of Tucumán.

In the early 1950s he won a scholarship to study at the University of Illinois, so he relocated to the USA with his wife at that time.

Founded in 1977 and led by Cesar Pelli, Fred Clarke, and Rafael Pelli, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has designed some of the world’s most recognizable buildings, including the World Financial Center in New York, the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and the International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.

This US architecture firm – based in New Haven, Connecticut – has been honored with critical acclaim and hundreds of design awards, including the American Institute of Architects’ Firm Award and the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
