Carlos Diniz

Carlos Diniz is recognized as one of the most important practitioners of Architectural Illustration in the twentieth century. His 40 year career saw him work with legendary architects like Frank Gehry, Sir Norman Foster and Minoru Yamasaki on iconic projects such as the World Trade Centre and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Frank Gehry said Carlos taught him how to draw.

Carlos Diniz was considered an integral part of American architecture and architectural presentation by his many clients, associates and peers. In 1993 he was awarded an Honorary AIA as a symbol of this accomplishment.

A small selection of the buildings Carlos worked on include:

WORLD TRADE CENTER, New York, NY

1901 AVENUE OF THE STARS, Los Angeles, CA

PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER, Los Angeles, CA

NEVADA PYRAMIDS, Las Vegas, NV
