Paulo Mendes da Rocha won the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize, bringing him to the attention of a worldwide audience after many years of producing buildings mainly in Brazil. He is known for his provocative use of concrete and steel in innovative architectural designs that are both critically acclaimed and popular. Widely credited with revitalizing the city, Paulo Mendes da Rocha has contributed many notable cultural buildings to his native São Paulo. While perhaps best known for his Brazilian Sculpture Museum in São Paulo (1988), his other notable built projects include the Brazilian pavilion at Expo ‘79 (Osaka, 1969), Serra Dourada Stadium (Goiânia, 1973), Pinacoteca do Estado (São Paulo, 1993), and FIESP Cultural Center (São Paulo 1997). He has also designed furniture, such as the iconic Paulistano Armchair which was reissued in 2004 by French furniture and accessories retailer Objekto.

Paulo Mendes da Rocha began his career in the 1950s as part of the Brazilian Brutalist movement. He served for many years as the president of the Brazilian Institute for Architects and has been honored internationally with the 2006 Pritzker Architecture Prize and the 2000 Mies van der Rohe Prize.Review:
PAULO MENDES DA ROCHA: PROJECTS 1957/2006 by Paulo Mendes da Rocha and Rosa Artigas (Rizzoli, 368 pages; $85). Brutalism is back. Or at least that once reviled architectural movement is being seriously re-evaluated. Best known for its heavy, monumental forms and the rough textures of its concrete surfaces, the style reached its apogee in postwar Europe, where it went on to become a symbol of the soullessness of postwar Modernism. A half-century later Brutalism is being rediscovered by a younger generation that sees it as an instructive counterpoint to the saccharine, theme-park architecture that plagues so many of today's cities. Those who still refuse to believe that Brutalism had a soulful side can pick up a copy of this book. Built mostly around his native São Paulo, Mr. Mendes da Rocha's work is injected with just the right hint of Brazilian hedonism, so that his buildings have a primitive quality worlds apart from the suffocating grayness of their European cousins. Best of all, a number of more recent projects demonstrate that in the hands of a true master the style has not exhausted its imaginative potential. NICOLAI OUROUSSOFF -- New York Times 12/7/2007
