Rafael Viñoly

One of the world’s best known architects talks with the RA’s Owen Hopkins about originality in architecture, the responsibilities of architects and the challenges facing cities over the next few decades.

Over the last thirty years, Rafael Viñoly has become one of the world’s most prolific architects, taking on projects at a range of scales and types, and on almost every continent. No two Rafael Viñoly projects look same, as he strives for a continual formal and structural originality that has seen him design buildings as diverse as the Tokyo International Forum (1996), 432 Park Avenue in New York, which will become the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere, and the controversial 20 Fenchurch Street – better known as the ‘Walkie Talkie’ – in the City of London.

In this event, Viñoly talks with Owen Hopkins, the RA’s Architecture Programme Curator, about a range of topics, including the function of originality in architecture, the public responsibilities of architects, the controversies that have surrounded several of his projects, and the part architects can play in overcoming the challenges facing cities over the next few decades.
