Experience:

In July 1968, Cesar Pelli became a partner in the firm of Gruen Associates where he directs the design of all architectural projects.

In September 1969, Cesar Pelli and a team of Gruen Associates designers won first prize in an international competition sponsored by the Republic of Austria and the City of Vienna. The competition, which drew more than 250 entries from all over the world, was for the design of a $120-million United Nations organizations headquarters and conference center to be constructed in Vienna.

Mr. Pelli began his professional career in 1954 when he joined the firm of Eero Saarinen and Associates. During his ten years there he was designer in charge of several notable projects in the United States and abroad.

Pelli joined the firm of Daniel, Mann, Johnson, & Mendenhall in 1964 as director (later vice president) of design. During the next four years he was responsible for the design of all the firm's architectural projects, several of which won national awards for design excellence.

In 1966, Progressive Architecture gave its highest award to Pelli's design for a hillside urban complex in the Santa Monica Mountains near Los Angeles. Again in its 1967 Design Awards Program, the magazine cited a DMJM project by Pelli, a laboratory and manufacturing complex designed for COMSAT (Communications Satellite Corporation), now under construction at Clarksburg, Maryland. In 1968 the American Institute of Steel Construction, honored Cesar Pelli's design for Teledyne's Aerospace Facilities in Northridge, California.

In its 1969 Awards Program, the Southern California Chapter of the American Institute of Architects gave an Honor Award to the Worldway Postal Facility at Los Angeles International Airport and Award of Merit to the Third Street Tunnel in Los Angeles, both projects designed by Pelli.

In addition to his professional activities, Pelli has continued to teach architecture and urban design. Among the universitites at which he has taught architectural design are Yale, Illinois, Tucuman and Cordoba (the last two in Argentina). Currently he is a visiting critic on the faculty of the University of California at Los Angeles Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Planning.
