Argentina’s leading architect, Cesar Pelli, responsible for producing iconic creations, the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia exhaled the last breath at age 92, the country’s official press release yesterday.

Pelli, who grew up in Argentina and studied at the University of Tucuman in the north-west of the country, came in as a visionary educator and carved out a name in the United States, his main studio base.

Argentina’s news agency and Tucuman provincial governor, where Pelli grew up, reported his departure yesterday.

“We regret to announce the death of the great architect Cesar Pelli. I would like to express my condolences to his family, friends and team.

“Mendiang is a creator and his legacy will continue to flourish in every piece of his work,” said area governor Juan Manzur via Twitter.

According to a late biography on the New Haven website, Pelli was appointed Dean of the Yale University Architecture School in 1977 and established Cesar Pelli and Friends.

The studio expanded and established branches worldwide, including Abu Dhabi, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo and Shanghai.

In addition to the Petronas Twin Towers which were then recognized as the world’s tallest building, Pelli’s inventions included the World Financial Center in New York, the Canary Wharf Tower in London and the renovation project of the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Prime Minister  Dr Mahathir Mohamad has conveyed his condolences to the family of Cesar Pelli, the Argentine architect behind the Petronas Twin Towers who died at 92 on Friday (July 19).

“My condolences to Cesar’s family,” Dr Mahathir said.

“I am sad to hear the news of the passing of the great architect who designed the Twin Towers in Malaysia, Mr. Cesar Pelli of Argentina. He was in New York when he came here to design this iconic building in Malaysia,” he added.
