Widely acclaimed as one of the leading architects of his generation, Rafael Viñoly is renowned for his elegant and expressive use of structural form and modern materials such as glass and steel. His work also reflects sensitivity to context and an intuitive understanding of how to respond to a specific site—attributes that made him an ideal choice for the Cleveland Museum of Art's building renovation and expansion project. In this video interview with the architect, Viñoly explains his vision behind his redesign of the CMA, reflecting upon which parts of its story to rewrite and which parts to keep.
